Long Lake in New Brighton

3 posts in this topic

I need a close by lake (st. paul area) to waste a few hours on on saturday. How is the crappie fishing on long lake? Sunnies? I also see on the lake finder that catfish had found their way into the lake from the mississippi, have their numbers grown since then or is it still just a few stragglers? Any info on the lake would be nice. Thanks in advance.

There's quite a few kinds of fish to catch on Long Lake. My buddies usually have better luck than me...I usually catch bullheads.

I haven't fished the lake for about a year now but back then...we'd fish for crappies by the boat launch and everything else around the pier. Decent amount of eyes, northerns, and carp. I tried for cats multiple times....but...still manage to only pull big bullies. I remember there were many nights where the fish would be very, very active....below and ontop of the water. You can't fish after dark but there are many regulars that I've met and fished with that does. The police drives by multiple times a night and won't bother you for staying past the closing time.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
