So what are the secrets here have a friend with a cabin up there and the bass fishing is always great. We love to fish the stumps in the south end of the lake where else can we find the big bucket mouths?

I am not a bass man at all but I know where the areas are like what you are talking about. The south end were my family has our cabin is as you put it pretty decent. Then as you head up the lake and you have two bays that you can get back into that have stumps and pads. The first is on the east side after you go past the first big point hang a right and and start heading south southeast. The other decent bay is on the west side near the north end of the lake by the camp ground there is some stumps and pads here too. The very northeast corner of the lake is the same.

Hey yea opener would be the time frame i will first be making a trip up there. Looking for good bass and northern fishing with maybe the occasional eye. The once or twice a year i make it up to long lake it always produces fish. Musky do you work at the bait shop in town? i hope to be making it up to my buddy's cabin more this summer.

I am more of a bass guy but from what ive heard it sounds like the best time to catch them on long is late at night. But my friends dad reeled in a fat 8 on a rattl trap so you never know.

I hate to say it but the eyes on Long have never been good to me that early in the year. If you have the option to travel to other lakes i would strongly suggest it at that time of year. 1st crow wing, and Potato are two really good choses for this time of year. If you must stay on long i would go to the north end and fish the north shore line. there is a good weed edge and lots of fish up there and it is shallower then most of the lake there for it warms up a touch quicker, not to mention the warm water coming in from Mud. look in 12 to 17 feet with leeches on a jig. lots of bass in that area of the lake so even if the eyes arent going you should be able to get a few fish. good luck and BE SAFE, Jonah

Long can be a very hard and difficult lake to fish. If you get in a school like my dad did last year on opening day, (caught 9 eyes in 2hrs) you can catch fish. But you can also get skunked. I have been on that lake since I was born and it has always been a tricky lake to fish, but there are definetly some big fish in there. I've witnessed probably 7 or 8 eyes over 27in.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.
