Emily Lake

3 posts in this topic

How come the Emily lake North of Crosby has so much fishing pressure during the summer, but zero pressure for ice fishing?

I never see anyone on lake.

emily gets little pressure anytime. most of the people parked at the access in the summer are fishing mary.

the reason there is no pressure in my book is that there is little to no structure and no real fish pattern.

Dipnet.... I also posted this in the ice fishing forum.

Those 2 nuts you speak of....well I know them too well. They don't fish Emily a ton in the winter, but everytime they do it is well worth their while. The ice is kinda sketchy as there are springs throughout the lake, but I think it is hyped a lot more than it should be. Dipnet....it's funny you call them "NUTS" because they are, but it has nothing to do with them being on Emily. Find a little break with good weeds. Small orange or chartreuse jigs tipped with waxies and you are in business. Good luck, if you dare to venture out.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
