I talked to a guy that lives on Long. He said the access is really in tough shape this winter. Sounded like only residents were getting on the lake. My only experience fishing it comes in the spring. About the time you start finding woodticks, the crappies move into the canal by the public access.

Thanks, Cicada, I went today, the access is ok but not a lot of houses out there. I was fishing in about 18 FOW, Something big around 2-3 pounds that took my line at about 7 feet. Vexilar showed a lot of activity on the bottom but none were hungry for waxies, minnows, and minnow heads. It was tough today. the Perch

Dang, Poutpro, that's prob what took my line, I would have been happy with that, if I only knew what it was... that's sometimes what gets ya...but, it's called fishing, right, I will be going back there soon, in looking at the map, there should be some great spots... out, the Perch

I am not saying that it was a pike, just that I know there are a lot of very small ones out there. There are also a few nice walleyes scattered in the mix.

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol

      My experiences would suggest, R&D  resort on Straight Lake and Eagles landing on 5th crow wing.
