Vergas Area

11 posts in this topic

Anyone fishing Vergas area lakes? Long, Loon? I've heard these lakes can produce some walleye, northern, crappies and even white fish or Tulibie??? The reason I say white fish is because I'm to dumb to spell the latter. grin.gif

The fish you are referring to goes by the names cisco, lake herring, or tullibee. Lake whitefish is a different species.

I haven't fished any of the Vergas lakes yet this season. I may hit Rose later in the season for some tullibees and crappies.

Yeah thanks, I wasn't sure of the fish name but I know there darn good smoked. I forgot about Rose,I've fished that lake a little and had some pretty good results in the past. I haven't made it out there this year though.

Long Lake is one of the best lakes for Tullibees.

My bro-in-law has been there a couple of times this year -- it is getting better as Feb. passes.

Long lake used to be excellent for walleyes back when we first started fishing there. We used to go out and catch 20-30 walleyes a night, im now to about 10-15 per year. They are out there, but they are smarter than me.

I've been meaning to try long, anyone got an idea of where to start (general area) out there. After all, it is a Long lake \:\/ I like hitting Rose late ice, and it does have nice slabs in it.

Theres a place where in the summer they suspend over a 30 foot area that i've been meaning to try, to try to explain it would probably be impossible, i should try it one of these weekends if i actually find the time. Send me an email

We'll do it sometime, I'll bring the sled out and we can explore. I've been wanting to ice fish Long but have never made it out.

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
