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.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
