FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Partly Sunny
Just got back from our family vacation. I didn't catch a Northern Pike or a Walleye. We did get some nice Crappie. A Fellow renter caught a bunch of Crappie jigging out in front of Larry the Cable Guys place in deep water. They were jigging twister tails tipped with white crappie nibbles. Caught about 50 One day. I also caught a few Bass. Rock Bass and bluegill were biting, too. It wasn't a great fishing trip but we did put some fish in the freezer and had one fish fry while we were there.

JBIRD68 Good luck and good fishing. I am headed up there July 25 for a week. Have been fishing the Chetek chain for years and this year trying Long for the first time. I have heard Walleye fishing here is good. But since a new lake for me I am grabbing a guide Jim Stroede for my Sunday fish day in hopes of learning the lake and making the rest of the week more productive. Look forward to your report! Hope to find a few of these.

Leaving Illinois for long lake in the morning. Weather forecast looks good for this week. Just want to find the walleye this time around. Only caught one two years ago.

I will be heading here on the 18th of July. I will check back to see how the fishing is. I was there back in 2013 and caught some nice fish. Only one walleye, a bunch of bass and Rock Bass. My son had a blast catching the Rock bass. But this time I want to get in to some nice walleye and big bluegill. My uncle used to fish north of the little island for gills. I didn't have any luck there. But I did catch one nice Gill just south of the sand bar on a crank bait. I caught the most fish in the last bay on the west shoreline just before you enter the narrows. Will try there again.

Hey guys, still not many reports. Thanks Jim Stroede for your input. Will be there next Saturday for a week, just excited for a week long trip. Anticipation is sometimes the best part of a vacation. Looking to just find out what is happening. What species is biting and where is the spawn ? We will find them with time, but a head start would be nice. We all do catch and release, we don't take coolers full of filets home. We may keep a few for a meal while there. Just looking for fun, give us the local excitement please. Anyone that may be willing to pm me I would love to meet some of the local lake linkers, we have been coming to this lake for thirty plus years. We may have some spots to share with each other as well as a few cold beverages. What do ya think ? Over and out, Finbow.

Guided out on Long this morning, we caught five walleyes, all between 16 and 19 inches. We kept two an 18 & a 19. Minimum size is 18 on Long. We also caught a mix of pike, large and smallmouth bass, crappie, perch ect. We caught our fish on jigs and leeches in the weeds. Good luck and good fishing, Jim Stroede

Hey there finbow. Looks like people have been having some success near the islands mid-lake, atleast from what I've heard. Mostly largemouth bass, but some smallies available in the 10-15 foot range. Just need to work around those pesky red-eyes, which seem to always get in the way!

Hey you guys that usually report on this lake have been really quiet, either nothing is going on or you are catching the hell out of them and want to stay quiet. Myself and six other guys will be up there for a week starting next weekend the 20 th and am stoked. We have been coming to long lake for 30 plus years and know it well, but every year is different. Part of going on vacation is the anticipation, I am dissappointed in the lack of posts for the lake so far this year. What is happening ? We don't need locations or anything like that, but what is biting ? Are the walleyes on, smallmouth hot, largemouth are always there but shallow or deep ? I can always catch a dogfish ( hence the nickname finbow that my brother gave to me). Just looking for some posts to stoke the fire of our excitement. Please put out some reports and/or send me a pm to let me know what is going on. Looking forward to a great week in the indianhead country. You can't beat the beauty of long lake no matter if you catch fish or not ! Fish on ! Finbow

The Gills are everywhere in and around the weed edges. We were catching bulls while walleye fishing using #2 and #4 hooks last week. Cannot imagine the bite if the proper tackle was used. The Grimdog hung this nice 25". Obviously still swimming. Water temp was 65 on 5/29/15
