I fish long lake whenever I get up there, my wifes family has a cabin near Ashby so I like to go over and fish the Dalton area. Its not developed that bad and the bass fishing can be pretty good. I never have hit the walleyes there but they do still catch some at times I hear. Nice lake usually fairly clear to.

I have fished this lake a few times just after Ice out but never with much luck. My parents live just outside of Dalton. I spend most of my time up there on the home lake but do venture out on some of the other lakes around. One thing for sure is that there is plenty of opportunities on those lakes to do well on all species.

There some pretty descent fish in there. Me and my friends have pulled some nice fish out of there. Such as some 10+lbs northerns and some 5-6.5 bass out of there. Walleyes are pretty hard to come by out there. But we managed to hook on to some on the south end of the lake past the island. Trolling the east shore with shad raps. Its not fished all that hard, so there in there. Good LucK!

      I haven't done it too much to this point, still trying to find my way around. All I have done so far is go from my place at Wabanica Bay to Pitt and then took the Pitt grade 20 miles in or so.  I've also covered all of the dirt roads around there.

      I dislike posting a question here, but after fishing this lake since ice out at least once a week I'm struggling to find the Crappie. Have only caught one and it was spawned out. Checked all my favorite spring spots and found nothing. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Lots of gills and more largemouth than ever, but no crappies.

      Your lucky you got use of yours so quickly.  Mine literally didn't get used for about 12 years even though I brought it with every time I went after big fish.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .
