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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
