Lake Emily

8 posts in this topic

We have never been up to this lake. Does anyone know how to catch the summer walleyes on Lake Emily? I really appreciate any help.

LUCK, is about the only way. they are in there but the lake is real shallow and weedy.

there are some good size fish, but it is a tough lake to fish.

lots of small pike and crappies and i've seen some good size bass.

i would say bobber fish with leeches in the evening is your best bet. if possible i would go to roosevelt for walleyes

and drag crank baits over the deep water.

I would have to agree that finding them will take alot of luck. The weeds this year seem to be really bad. I've actually caught more walleye in Mary than Emily. Mary is deeper and has more humps and flats.

I haven't been out too much either, the rice looked good out on lows lake

Last time I was at my brother in laws place. I have been pretty busy also.

I have to make some time though I have to start the training on my new

duck hunting partner, he Is real stubborn but mostly lazy, he does about

5 or 6 retrieves and then will take the bumper and go lay down somewhere.

Definatly a lot harder to train than the dog I lost last fall. She was really

missed last duck season.

i checked out a couple lakes last night, rice looks good.

duck lake is way down you would need a boat that can travel in 6" or less the water was at least 5' from the end of the dnr dock.

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.

      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.

      If I go on an infected water I get it cleaned regardless.  Granted 99% of the time I fish a non-infected lake but still get it cleaned just incase.
