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.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
