Fished Long for two hours last evening.  Close to shore looking for gills.  Anchored in 5 fow and threw jigs to 3 fow tipped with a waxie.  What fun.  Nice 8-9 inch gills every time.  Had a guest fisherman with me AKA Claw.  He did a nice job reeling them in.  Pretty windy, but still a lot of fun.  Tight lines !   IC

The Northwood was out for a couple hours Sunday evening.   Very windy, so we fished the shallow water where we could find a wind block.  Blue gills were all over the place.  Small jig with a small piece of waxie and a very small split shot.  As soon as the bait hit the water, BAMMM, the gills engulfed it.  We were behind Newhouse point in 6fow casting into 3.5fow.  Lots of fun.  All catches were CPR'd.  Most of the gills were 8-9 inches and beautiful colors. Tight lines !   IC

The Northwood set sail on Long Lake Monday morning from 0630 to 1000 hours.  What a bonanza of fish.  Mostly floated thru 3-5 fow casting a 1/32 oz mini mite (yellow or green) tipped with a little piece of waxie. Tried to stay in the shady areas close to shore.  Blue gills were all over the place.  Most were 8-9 inch range.  Also a few nice yellow bass, a 16" cat, a LMB and some perch.  Great action from the first cast on.   Tight lines !   IC

Weather finally was nice on 4/12, but we couldn't buy a hit out in the lake; our usual spots produced nary a nibble. Tried shallow and gradually went deeper, threw spinners, plugs, jigs, minnows, pieces of crawler: nada. Nobody else seemed to be doing much, either. Fishing Squaw Creek at Swanny's, we caught a few genuinely jumbo perch and a bluegill or two. No sign of the crappies that hung around the marina a few years ago. Water levels surprisingly low for spring, and water seemed clearer than usual. Only fish we spotted were carp jumping close to shore on the SE side near the cattails. At least we weren't skunked!

Fished from 11am-5pm.  All I can say is wet and wild.  Steady action fish moving in every 5-10 minutes in packs of 2-4.  Worked depths of 8-19fow with a mix bag of gills, perch, yellows, whites, and crappies. Most of the fish were small but plenty of action.  Moon jig with meat.

Fished from 2:30 - 5 catching a mixed bag of crappie, yellows, gills and perch. Did pretty good in the short amount of time landing well over 50 fish. Used plastics and fished 15 fow. Kept a few for the frying pan.

I shouldn’t be asking but what side of the lake were you on?

Fishing 10/1, fish were scattered and action slow. Our usual hotspots weren't even lukewarm. We marked an impressive number of fish stacked up over a hump in the middle of the lake, but couldn't figure out how to make them bite. Four fish--a bass, two perch and a very healthy bluegill like those we caught all spring and summer--until the cold wind and rain got the better of us. All fish were on worms below a bobber; jig and bait and small spinners with/without bait did not produce their usual way.

Fish are still on the move and schooling up. Mark anchor and suspend 7-15fow. 5 min intervals at a time 3-5 fish per interval
