I don’t remember the name but there is a guy that runs a bait shop out of his garage that sells basically all kinds of bait. If you turn onto Long Lake Rd from Hwy 10 and go toward Long Lake, turn right on Northshore Dr, he’s on the corner. It’s a cash only honor sales setup. See circled on map screenshot.

Fish friday slow day for me and buddy crappies would not hit anything just look moved all over north end of the lake .water is very dirty more than normal due to the run off . lots of hole drilling going on.Fish On
Fished 2-5 pm today. Caught several decent bluegill and crappie. Very finicky had to jig em up. Not quite "keepers" to me but some decent fish. All released.
More importantly, we discovered thin, soft ice around the mid lake hump. Stopped a few groups from walking over it. Wasn't just one spot either. Spudded around in that area and found consistency with the bad ice. Was going through with 1-2 hits. Holes that were open around there the water would rise with each step while walking around them. Spud bar if you're walking off the beaten path. Don't assume everything is safe.
