Hey all, haven't read anything new on here for awhile, but how has the fishing been, all species. Needing some pointers on where to go. Bringing my father-in law up and want to show him some good fishing.

FISHING REPORT

Hi All,

We just completed my family's annual trip to Long Lake fishing from Sat June 7 - Sat June 14. Pretty good weather with a mixture of partly cloudy, sunny and rainy days....most days had temps in the 70s with only one rainy and cold day which was our worst fishing day by far.

Overall the fishing was good with great largemouth bass fishing for those who like to fish for bass. Most taken on plastic worms (prerigged and texas style).

Slow crappies but we did not focus too much on them since the bass were active.

Good numbers on walleye catches but only 1 over 18 inches for the week - we really only spent about an hour each night chasing walleye and usually caught about 5 each night when targeted. So overall not too bad for a novice walleye fisherman.

Decent northern catch - but on the small side with most less than 24 inches caught while fishing for bass or walleye.

A ton of rock bass as usual and a few large perch - none of which were taken due to the black spots....do not want to take the chance on cleaning them since we do not know what the spots on the scales in and the meat is all about.

Tim

I was mistaken. I was told it wasnt going to go up. Here is what the DNR has listed. Guess I should have looked it up first. Keeping just one sure wouldnt hurt anything though.

According to the Long Lake Chamber of Commerce the limit was just raised to 2 per day.

Has the limit for walleye been increased to two fish. If so, what is the explanation from the DNR?

Fished Old Lady Long from 5-20 thru 5-30. Caught plenty of walleye in the 15 to 22 inch range but not as many smaller ones as years past. A 24", 25" and 26" also. Don't understand the 1 per day limit. Water temp was 46 degrees on the first day and 66 degrees on the last. Water temp did not seem to matter. Had one excellent night with lighted bobbers along the Boy Scout camp.

Went fishing this memorial weekend. Caught a bunch of Black crappies, all of which averaged 10"+. Caught a bunch of Largemouth Bass, with the largest being 18". Tried for walleyes with no luck. Caught a couple of big bluegills. From what i could tell the largemouth bass were starting to bed up in the shallow and found the panfish in the same area. Oh, and 1 of the guys I was fishing with did catch a northern.

Mosquitos are out in force too! Looks like I have chicken pox.

Well, the walleye limits just increased on 447 lakes in WI after the tribes didn't spear the amount they declared. However, this does not include Long Lake. Limit remains at 1 walleye over 18".
