Recommended Posts

Guest

I will be spending a week on a private island on long lake just south of stalker lake. The name of this location is called Great Northern Island if anyone has any information on this property i would love to hear it.I would also like to know what the lake is like, for I cant seem to find to many details on this body of water.
Thank You

A friend of mine told me that this Long Lake you speak about is an excellent fishery. I haven't made it to that lake yet, so can't help you much. It has been tough fishing around here lately. For awhile there, fall seemed to be approaching and now??? who knows. Good luck, sounds like fun.

You should be able to find info on the lake through the DNR website, and click on Lake Finder. You should be able to get lake maps and fish surveys.

I was up there a few weeks a go for the weekend, its a nice island with a beautiful amish built log cabin. I didn't get a chance to fish any so I can't help you there.
There is a web site for the island it is "greatnorthernisland.com"
I hope this help you. Enjoy your stay and good luck fishing.

I was fishing at Stalker from Aug. 18-24, and due to the lack of walleye cooperation we wandered over to Long on a couple of the days. We didn't try for walleyes, but had a blast casting for bass and pike along the shorelines. We caught them all over the lake, but seemed to have the best luck on the north shore from the boat ramp to the east end. Lots of action on spinnerbaits of various colors. Nothing huge (up to 3-4 pounds), but enough to give me a sore, bleeding thumb at the end of the first day! And no, I didn't lip the pike, just the bass ;-)

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
