Lake Emily

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.

One of the top Bullhead lakes in the state.

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.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
