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.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
