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.

Ya know, everyday I drive by Long Lake on my way to wadena and see all the houses out there and I think to myself, "self, we should stop by there one day." I have yet to though

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 was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
