What's the story on this lake anyway? I NEVER see anyone fishing this lake? Is there NO fish to be caught here? confused.gif

emily has alot of fish. it is real hard to fish though since it is basically structureless and weed choked.

i fished it a few times for crappies and caught a ton of them drifting with a plastic bait, but the weeds make it very difficult.

you can find pockets where there are no weeds but they don't seem to hold many fish. the depth is about 9-11 feet

the best spots were in the cabbage around the point.

i know that there are walleyes and pike also but have never fished for them there.

There are a lot of pike in that lake. Grab a spinner-bait and cast in less than 10 feet of water. You'll have a blast. Nice sunfish are in there as well, but in shallower. I fished it quite a bit last summer when I lived in that town.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
