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.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
