Got a few hours in the morning on 8/20 and the bass fishing was ridiculous. It was almost every cast for 2.5 hrs.  Bass range from 12"-20" suspended jerk bait in 5- 10 fow.  Also a few Noryjers were in play.  Nothing huge (20"-28").  After the fury headed shallow. 2-3fow for some panfish.  Kept a few for the fryer.

Windy conditions made for good fishing as the Northwood sailed on Long Lake late yesterday afternoon/evening.  Today it was a bluegill, crappie and perch fest.  Most fish were caught in 2.6 fow with a small jig and a waxie or very small minnow.  Even landed a sheep and plenty of small LMB.  As the winds picked up we used a very small split shot to help settle down the presentation.  An abundance of fish, all CPR'd. Water looked great.

Northwood was out on Friday evening from 5p - 7p.  Once again we had great luck with gills and perch and a few small LMB on the west side of the lake up against the north bank.  I have never seen gills that big on Long.  Fishing is great !   Smallest jig with plastic and waxie, no split shot.   Casting into 3 fow.   Also fished off Coon Island but in a little deeper water, maybe 7 feet or so.  Let the jig sink all the way to the bottom and very slow retrieve.  Huge gills and perch.  Great night to be out.   IC

Icechopper-long time fan of your Northwoods reports on chain action but very confused by your Long lake post below. Clearly visible weedlines??? I find zero standing weeds and water sure isn't "clear with syrupy color". What's up with that? Am I on wrong "Long Lake"?

Friday evening report.   Northwood sailed on Long Lake.  We used the 1/32 jig, with a gold or lime tail and added a waxie or a small piece of fake minnow tail.   BONANZA !  Too numerous to count.  The gills were all over the bait in 3-4 fow.  Biggest was 8.5".  Weed lines were very visible as the water was clear, with the syrupy color.  Fished the northwest side of the lake from 5-7 pm.  Also got three LMB, one very large yellow bass and some nice perch.  Also drifted thru 12-13 fow and the crappies were attacking the bait.  A very fun couple of hours.   Tight lines !   IC
