Long Lake (Burtrum)


Recommended Posts

Hi, my family is staying at the resort on Long Lake near Burtrum (right next to Big Swan) next week. If anyone is willing to pass along some info to help us get on some fish I would really appreciate it. We will be targeting mostly panfish and northerns... maybe walleyes if we are ambishous. We are big catch/release people with just a few sunnies for the pan. Feel free to PM me or email so as not to broadcast too much on-line. thanks for any help you're willing to offer!

Sorry, this one of the few lake's in the area I have never been on. I hope someone has something for ya. If you would be intrested in going down the road a few mile's I could help you out on a walleye/panfish bite over on Big Birch.

Thanks Rick, I appreciate it. We won't be up there very long and I don't think we'll have a chance to get to Big Birch. I fished that lake as I kid and have great memories of it. Glad to hear it is still a good lake.

Just to let you know there is a slot on northerns out there, 24 to 36 inch must be released. You should get some decent fish even if they have to be returned. I know some guys that fish them and they get some dandies. It's a decent panfish lake with some nice fish. I would think they are finishing spawning out there so just find weeds and you should do decent. Lake I was on last week they were moving to there normal summer spots. Good luck and have a great time!!

This lake is relatively deep and it tends to warm up slow. I havent been on it this year, but that has been the case in the past. I like the West shore for crappies. Limited out there a couple years ago in an area right in front of the Supper Club on the West side. We were anchored in shallow and casting deep and slowly retrieving. No bobber, no bait. Just a "crappie" jig one of those tube baits.

There are some real nice pike in there for sure thanks to the slot.

Walleyes if you find them are nice as well. Fish a bobber, 1/16 oz jig and leech and could find some. Locate some underwater points with inside turns and anchor there. That is one way I caught walleyes, the other was trolling spinner rigs with crawler harnesses in the 20 foot range. Its hit and miss though for walleyes. You should find enough panfish to keep you entertained though.

Thanks alot guys!! I really appreciate you pointing us in the right direction to help us get started. Like I said, we wont be up long so we'll see what the weather allows. If we get into anything I'll share some pics.

Some good weed beds on the east side of the lake, good sunnie action there. There are also some huge bass in the lake. If you get a chance stop at the Hub Supper Club, great food. Good luck.
