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.

Never caught an 'eye on that lake. Not even a 10-incher ;))

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.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.
