For those who think a summer isn't complete without fishing, Long Lake is spring-fed, so the water is clear and clean. The lake is small -- 280 acres -- with a range of fish habitats. There are shallow, weedy bays packed with bass, as well as deep holes with walleyes and northerns. Within casting distance of our dock the water depth drops to 12 feet -- sunfish, bass, and crappies are within an easy throw. Our bait house has nightcrawlers, leeches, and a variety of minnows -- all the makings of a great fishing vacation.
Open May 1 - October 1
