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

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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
