Long Lake has most of the same species as any other lake. Pike, Largemouths, gills, crappie, etc. Most of the lake is extremely shallow. There is a deep hole on the South end of the lake. That would be a good spot to set up tip ups and jig for panfish.
I have fished here for a number of years, both ice fishing and off the kayak in the summer. Catch a few pike on the ice each year. One short one last weekend off a tip up with a shiner. Try the shallow areas on the east and west sides of the lake. Lots of weeds to contend with, but that is where the pike like to hide.
