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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
