Has anyone heard how the ice fishing is on any of the D/C area lakes. Big Swan, Little Swan, Long Lake, Arvilla? And what have you been catching - eyes, crappie, gills, pike???

Hello -

I have not heard many reports around the area. I know there are a few houses on Arvilla not sure what they are catching. I live on long lake and have been out twice. However, I did not get my shack where I wanted too. I did end up catching TONS of perch - all pretty small though. It's my first time ice fishing long lake though. Do you know any good spots on this lake?

No I do not know any hot spots on Long Lake. Even though I do on live far from Long Lake, I have never fished it. I have had friends who fish it in the summer and do very well on largemouth bass using top water baits. I am going to try and get out after x-mas and do some ice fishing but where is still the million dollar question. With this funky weather we have been having, it is going to take a few days for the fish to settle down and open their mouths again. Good luck on the hunt. Keep mobile

Have not been there myself, but talked to a friend who fished Big Swan over the weekend, Lots of Crappies, but didn't catch anything over 9 in.
