Lake Emily(by Shoreland C.C.)????

9 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has fished it at all recently. I've never fished there but was wondering how the ice was and how the bite is. Any info would be great.

Haven't ice fished it but have fished it many times in the spring / summer; crappies, bass, notherns, and carp. Dove it a few times in the fall. The back bay by Shoreland CC is the deep water and most of the fishing is. In spring the fish stack up just outside the entrance to the bay on the main lake. The main lake holds a few fish during the summer but the other bays are really shallow. Also, watch out for the big rocks at the entrance to the bay CC is on, shouldn't be bad with this much snow but they are big.

Good action, but the size is small, great to bring the youngens! but dont count on much of a meal.

There's a rope swing in the back bay to the right as you go through the rocks - the crappies have done well in 18-20 feet on very small crappie minnows, moved very slowly. Works there in the summer as well - good luck and hook into one of those monster carp in Emily!

If you are referring to ice fishing, go through the golf course , stay to your left, park next to the shed where they keep the golf carts. park there and walk down.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
