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.

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282
