coach kwj, sorry I didn't see your question sooner! We were trolling very shallow, maybe 3-5 ft. if that. White bass and other species will come high in the water column to feed on bait fish, and we just happened to find a school of them.
76° - 80° F
86° - 90° F
We had fun last week in the middle of a sunny afternoon by trolling small silver spinners tipped with waxies or a bit of nightcrawler. We must have hit a school of baitfish, because every pass we got hits. Crappie, white bass, perch, and bluegill, all but the perch good size (a white bass I caught went 15"). Easy, fun fishing.
Thanks for your help, I launched there yesterday and four it easily. Really enjoyed it, classic bass lake.
Like slonezp said, only launch/parking on the lake is Swanys. $10 weekdays, $15 weekends.
Swanys is the only option.
Can anyone share the options for launching a boat on Long Lake and the cost of each?
Well, Swaney’s ramp WAS open. Used it this morning. Word of caution: channel already high this morning before tonight’s rain. Not a lot of clearance under the bridge over the channel leading to the main lake. Saw a large inboard have to turn around. My 16’ Lund went under without much room over the windshield. I’d call ahead.
Anyone know if Long's launch is open? Asking due to chain being closed to boating currently. Appreciate any knowledge.
