The bays of Long Lake are excellent for large northern pike in excess of 20 pounds. In the early season (late May and early June) you can literally catch large northerns from morning til evening if your arms can take it.
The northerns like to lay in the shallows and in the weeds in wait of their prey. There is nothing like the experience of a 20 pound northern attacking your bait. You are in for the fight of your life.
The fly fishermen are having lots of fun with the northerns while taking a break from the brook trout.
