LITTLE LONG LAKE

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if the ice is off this lake yet? It is in Minnetrista, I think. I was thinking of trying it this weekend and live in Woodbury and can't just drive over and look for myself. Thanks in advance.

i would think so, as the ice is off most all of the lakes in the metro from what i have noticed, including all the water on tonka. i may be wrong!

Little long was the first lake I got out on this year, was open over a week ago.

Do you ever have any luck with crappies on this lake?

According to the DNR, there aren't any crappies in there. I might give it a try on Sunday if I can get away for a little bit. Thanks for the info about the ice. I ice fished it once this winter and caught the smallest perch I have ever caught and a lot of potato chip sunnies. I dropped the camera down and saw a sunken dock straight out from the launch in about 20ft of water. It was kinda funny too, because there was a toilet on it sitting upright even! There were a lot of tiny sunnies under it also.

Yea I dont know of any crappies coming out of there, must not be in there, but there is a few nice size sunnies in there, but finding them can be almost impossible some days. This lake is so much different from other lakes I fish, I just cant figure fish out period in this lake. Giant pike also leark the deep, clear water, probablly eat trout.

You can see my extended post about this lake in a different thread that I made today (can't remember which thread, myabe you can search for it).

There are a few crappies in Little Long, but only a few, and they are small. I definitely would not go there if crappies are what you want. It's a good pike lake, and not bad for bass. Very clear, deep, cold, etc.

Please CPR all larger bass+pike.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
