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.

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
