Default Long Lake

Has anyone been up to Long Lake lately? Is it fishable yet? I thought there boat launch or whatever you want to call it would be a mess.

Thanks,
Tony

Hi SeA nYmPhO,
Tha ramp isn't much worse off than it was last year...they did re-do it last year didn't they? I always loved that giant stone they left at the water line in the middle of the ramp area. The right side facing out is eroded a bit more than the left as usual...LOL). I rearranged some debris..and it is plenty serviceable now. The lake itself is clear...with a lot less detritus, after the thaw than some years...last year I reported a sunken boat, 3/4 under water, about a third of the way down the Tusc., to the Div. of Watercraft guys...they said sorry, no salvage rights, so I let them get it. This year all I got was a beach ball. (Bobby loves it. )As far as Long Lake...it's ready to fish, the water is a little cloudy still, but it's wide open.
This wind is awful...it was tough on Saturday when I was on there too...
Hope this helps,
Good fishing,

May see you there Tony, I've got to run some special gas additive through the motor for a few minutes and sure can't do that on Nimi.

Yeah Ill more than likely be on Long lake on saturday. If you see a white sea nympho on the lake say "hey". Has anyone been crappie fishing there yet? Its been years since I fished for crappies there but was good. Just wondering if anything was biting there so i know what to fish for.

Thanks,
Tony

Tony,
You are right, A lot of guys fish there for Crappie. Crappie fishing has been going on pretty succesfully all winter long from shore on the Channel behind the Kiwanis Club on Portage Lakes drive...you might want to check in with "T" at "T's" Long Lake Bait and Tackle...he's a Crappie man and look's like he's been busy down there chasing something.
AS an aside from these reports...Big Daddy and others are reporting Crappie from North Res. and Smallieguy is catching a few at Nimisilla.
Good Luck, and Good Fishing,
(I'll look for you saturday...I'll be in a small Basstracker with an old '56 Bronze Johnson 10hp. motor. While you are here don't forget Land Big Fish has their rescheduled sales event going on this weekend too.)

Yeah i might have to stop in and ask him. Not sure exactly where its at but im ill probally be able find it. I have a hard enough time finding the boat launch at Long Lake. I'm not too familiar with the portage lakes area. I'm going to print out a map of the area maybe that will help me . I've been to nimi the most of any of the lakes and have caught many fish there.

Tony,
Continue on out north on South Main from Nimi...take Portage lakes Drive to left, continue around curve to right at clocktower past StateMill rd...past the Kiwani's on your right...North Reservoir and ODNR District Three will be on your left, "T's" is on your right just before that...they have a small ramp, but I would suggest that you use the Cove St. Ramp off Manchester rd. To get there go on past "T's" and the old Mandas's on your right to Cormany Rd...turn right...follow Cormany to Manchester Rd...(at the VFW with the cannon), turn right, onto Manchester and turn right again at the next block onto Cove...the ramp is at the end of the street, about a block down on your left. (To get to Land Big Fish turn Left coming out of Cove and go to the Plaza just beyond McDonalds on your left they are in the mid front of the Plaza that has Harbour Freight in the back.)
Hope this helps...

Another Route would be continue North on South Main to Rt 619...take a right and turn right again at Manchester Rd...(LBF is in the Plaza just before McDonald's at Robinson Rd.)...Cove St. is on the right a couple blocks past Autozone.

Confused yet?...give me an IM or e-mail if you need to.

Hey Woody. You are going to get him confused. To get to LBF he will want to turn left out of Cove St. and head south on Manchester Rd.
