Hey, I have been fishing Long for several years.It's a great fishing lake. I mainly fish for walleye's. But there is also good bass and northern fishing in the lake. I think you can also get panfish on both end of the lake up in the stump field's. Be carefull when motoring in to either one of these spot's there is a ton of submerged stump's. There's plenty of good walleye spots on the lake look for points that come out from shoreline.One popular spot for eye's is the road bed towards the north end. Another popular spot is a bar that comes out from the shore line on the eastern side of the lake. I would guess it is around three miles from the north end. It's around two or three blocks south of the resort that has one of those striped trampolines in front of there place. It's hard to miss the bar because it come's up to 7 or 8 feet and stretch's half way across the lake. Watch your depthfinder you'll find it. My favorite way of fishing eye's is lindy rig and crawler's and it alwalys seem's to good for me. Fished the lake 9 day's in June caught lot's of walleye's biggest was 27".

Good luck!

My parents have had a cabin here my whole life. I have growen up on this lake and get there fairly often through out the summer. So here are some of my tips to aid your search. As far as panfish go this is a great lake to take the kids out to. You won't catch alot for size but you will a large quantity and that is the best for kids anyhow. They don't care about the size. The south end of the lake is great across from the land up to the first narrow is where I always have luck. Find some growth and will get fish. Once the pads are out then all you have to do is fish those. There are lots of down trees in the water these are great spots for spring panfish and bass as well. Also the shallow water bay that are midlake on the east and west side will produce some fish. The extreme NE corner has also produced panfish for me in the past. Most of the panfish will be sunfish but there will be a occational crappie tossed in. Walleyes can be tough to say the least what works one day on long might not the next. I usually have decent luck pulling snells with crawlers along the first shoreline break or over the points. There are several points too as mentioned all of these hold walleyeson any given day. You have to work for them but they are there. Also there are a few sunken island humps try these they are good to. Get a lakemap to aid in find some of these humps. Vertical jigging can be effective as well. For bass I am not a great bass angler and don't claim to be but there are always boats on the south end amongst the down trees so that is usually a good spot to try. Good luck and don't take all the fish leave some in there for me wink.gif The last couple weekends fishing has been tough. But the good thing is that if they aren't bitting here there are other lakes only a moment away. Big Sand is another favorite of mine though I haven't fished it for a few years. It is getting so that when I go to the cabin all I do is yard work and sleep. I put the boat in in May put it on the lift and in Sept it will come out. Good luck and if you would like additional info fire me a email. I would be more than willing to try and help.
