Walleye fishing in Long Lake is a very popular pursuit. Anglers often find success by trolling with crawler harnesses, jigging with minnows or artificial jigs, or drifting with live bait rigs. Key areas to target walleye include rocky structures, points, and areas with depth changes. Early morning and evening are often prime times to catch these elusive fish.
One of the popular fish species in Long Lake is largemouth bass. Anglers can target largemouth bass by casting plastic worms, crankbaits, or topwater lures near weed beds, submerged structures, or around fallen trees. These feisty fish provide exciting action and can be found throughout the lake.
Smallmouth bass also thrive in Long Lake and are highly sought after by anglers. They are known for their aggressive strikes and fighting spirit. Anglers often target smallmouth bass by casting jigs, soft plastics, or crankbaits along rocky shorelines, points, or drop-offs. These bronzebacks are known to provide thrilling battles and are prized catches in the lake.
Both black crappie and white crappie can be found in Long Lake. Anglers can target crappie by using small jigs, minnows, or live bait under bobbers near submerged structures, brush piles, or docks. Crappie provide an excellent opportunity for anglers to fill their creel with delicious fillets.
Northern pike, yellow perch, and bluegill are also popular species in Long Lake.
