Finally made it up to Long Lake to fish this winter. The weekend was warmer (mid 20's) as compared to last weeks negative temps. It was sunny both days and very calm. About 6 inches of snow so I could easily tow with the snowmobile.

Saturday Jan 14: Around 11:30 I got out and set up tip ups on weedlines and then jigged nearby deeper flats. Got a nice 5-lb Northern on a tip-up using a large sucker minnow. Jigging with a teardrop and crappie minnow yielded lots of Perch and a little 14" Walleye, with the biggest perch about 9 inches. As the sun went down, I moved the tip-ups deeper and switched to shiner minnows. Caught 22" and 19" Walleyes. From 5-7pm we had this same tip-up go off 6 times, the other 4 got away. After reports of a slow week last week, it seems that the fish were back and active!

Sunday Jan 15: We got started around 3pm. We did have 6 flags go up over 2 hours but didn't ice any fish. After dark, we had a school of crappies come under our shack and stayed there from about 6-9pm in 18 FOW. Caught crappie from 5-in up to 13-in, suspended anywhere in the water column. Crappie minnows on teardrops jigs.

Overall a great weekend at the lake.

Angler's Dream, how much ice did you have and which part of the lake did you fish? Was thinking about going out again on the south end and would like to drive my truck out if there are any trucks running out. Otherwise I'll load the snowmobile up and use that.

Very little going on here.  Saturday was cold and windy so we were primarily confined to the shack. No hole hopping. We registered a few marks, but no bites in about two hours of fishing. Hopefully this front passes, and things pick up.

I was out on Saturday evening. Ice on the south end was 6-7". Sleds and ATV's were all over. Should make quite a bit of ice the rest of this week.  Fishing was slow, two pike and one 13" walleye.

I sent an email to Jim at Daves outboard and he said the web cam should be up and running this week sometime. Keep your fingers crossed.

Saw a couple of guys fishing the south end this weekend. Both of them were fairly close to shore - I'm not sure how much ice we've got, just that the snow may have slowed growth.

Does anyone have a recent ice thickness?
