The PR paper had a article on tullibees in long lake. So I presume they are in the lake.

Just for clarification, we're talking about Long Lake off highway 34, not Long Lake up by Itasca State Park.

Yes, the tullies are definitely thick out there. Good times.

Pan Man,

Ever try Leech Lake? I have had great success there in the past. Quite a few tullibee, and some really nice whitefish (tullibee limit 50, whitefish limit 25 on Leech). I always went out of Stony Point. Go to where everyone else is. Fish out from the group, tullies like their quiet time.

Be carefull, the ice at the access is here today, gone tomorrow. (I almost lost a friend, wheeler, and gear there one year.) I was there two days before and no problems, the sun tears the ice up fast! We are a couple weeks out from that concern I would think though...

I use the smallest white jigs you can find, and a waxie. (Bring lots of waxies!) Use your locator and move up to the fish. fairly deep water suspended. Small bobbers. Lite line. Good luck.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.

      That is great. turkeys are on the move

      They eat little bitty stuff.   But them and whitefish should be catchable in summer.  They are eating after all.
