Spending some time on Long Lake just west of Traverse City. Less interested in the lake's famous walleyes. Any general advice / approaches for bass and other species? Thanks in advance.

I was up there acouple weeks ago. I found a lot of bass in the 8-15 foot range flipping a brown 1/2 ounce football head jig, not much weed growth at the time and no fish on the beds but did pretty well. water temp was 64ish. I was using 20lb fluorocarbon. If you wanna put the smack down on little ones go to mickey lake that's connected with a senko or ned rig. most the fish out of long were 2.5-5 lbs. bring extra tackle as the gander up there had very little left and I couldn't really find any other tackle stores. Did catch some ok pike there on the jigs too. good luck
