From time to time we receive pictures of Long Lake kids and their fishing stories. We post them as we can.. (LongLakeLiving website managers)
Liam's Fish Story:
Every summer we go to my cottage - The Bluebird. It’s been in my family for ninety years.
On our first day, not long after arriving, we headed out on to the lake. It was early evening and the weather was windy and cool for late July. We motored south of Breezy Point along Chippewa Loop where I decided it was a good place to shut her down and drift. That day I decided to use some type of plug lure with a nightcrawler. I dropped my line into the water. We weren’t there for very long before I got a bite. I started reeling it in even though Mom said, “You don’t have a fish on - so just stop!”. But I knew better! After a minute or two, without putting up much of a fight, I pulled in a walleye about half my size. I was only five years old at the time. Here’s a picture of me with my big catch.
From Liam's dad. He'll someday be the sixth generation to own our cottage, and he, as I,
loves Long Lake and the time spent there - regardless of the 15 hours
it takes to arrive!
