So is a nuisance Bass simply a nuisance because it's a Bass, or is there a qualifying size where it is not a nuisance? 

12 inch dink smallmouth that swallows your hook...yeah, I get it, annoying and definitely a nuisance. But a 3lb largemouth is a nuisance?

Same question for the Pike. If it were a 39" Pike would that be amazing (Certainly hope so) or a disappointment?

Wife and I caught about a dozen small walleye, one fish 22", last night in the deep water around Kunz. Trolling with bottom bouncers and leeches on a Lindy. Very windy with whitecaps on the lake, trolling a weave from the weedlines out to 40 ft. Once you find fish hanging on the edge in 20-30 ft might have to work 'em repeatedly 10-15 times to get a bite. The walleye bite was totally off until sundown. We caught 4 nuisance bass in 2-3 lbs range, and one nuisance northern ~28" making our turns off the weedlines before the walleye bite turned on. All fish were catch and release.

Hey fellas, 

I'm returning to Long Lake for the first time since I was a young lad. How has the bite been? I've read alot of mixed reviews, some guys really like the lake, others say its overrated and overfished. Any tips on color schemes or anything to help a guy be productive? Looking for bass, panfish and maybe some walleye (is there a slot?).

Thanks Gents!

I have seen Tom Boley out of Hayward fish LL.  Find his videos on YT...quite good as a mentor and walleyes are hot 15 to 22 in area lakes right now.

I have had good luck on this spot. It's a hump about 10 feet underwater that runs deeper quickly. I've caught Crappie, Bluegill and a small Walleye with a Jigging Rap off the hump. I was snap jigging the jigging rap. I learned this from a guide in the Hayward area. He has a YouTube channel and mostly fishes Walleye. go to YouTube and check out Tom Boley. 


For the Crappie and Bluegill we were fishing with slip bobbers using Berkley Honey Worms in Natural and Yellow color. I am sure the Gulp! Alive 1" Minnows would work also. Emerald Shiner is what I usually get...if I can find them.

Heading up at the end of July for family vacation. Any pointers? I'm not too picky about species, just like catching fish!

Fished Long the last 2 weeks of May. Fishing was slow compared to past years. Very cold water (49 degrees) when we arrived and weeds weed lines were just starting to be established. Although numbers were down the average size for us was the best it's been in years. All fish pictured were CPR'd.

Just gotta know where to fish, plenty of walleye out there. 

Took my wife out last Sunday for an hour and managed to get a nice 19” walleye and about 6 nice 14”-17” bass.

Didn’t get a big fishing weekend in this spring so can’t speak to my normal fish patterns, but weeds are key until water temps hit 70
