Emily/Outing area

Just wondering if there are any good lakes in the Emily area to troll crankbaits at night on. I have heard the Whitefish chain can be good, but what about some other local lakes. Washburn, Roosevelt? thanks

Hey IrishSOB, I see you are from Emily. Question about duck hunting. I don't want any secret spots or to crowd anybody, but I am bringing brother and friend up to that area the second weekend, and was wondering if you know of any places other than the WMA's that offer a decent place to hunt? I.e. lakes with chance at ducks (not great shooting) but nice area with some nice reeds or cattails, and an access for small (8' and 12') boats.

I only go up once per year, and was wondering about the areas right around Emily, as some of those lakes are small and appear to be legally spares enough to hunt.

If not not biggie, I don't want to take anyones spots or maybe you don't hunt. Thought I would ask smile.gif My place is in the Crosslake refuge, so I can't hunt there... drat.

Thanks!

all the normal decent spots are dried up. others like duck lake are nothing but muck and rice virtually impossible to hunt. your best bet is to go north of Remer to the Mud and Goose WMA. Big Rice and area lakes get hit pretty hard, especially now that the smaller places are dried up.

you could also try the longville or boy river area.

Thanks Irish! Hmmm, I might need to rethink things.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
