Lake Emily

4 posts in this topic

I would like to try this lake for opener, maybe.

Any thoughts on this lake?

I was wondering how the ice fishing season was this past winter?

Thanks for any info!

the one in pope county right? Not to much for houses out there this past winter the water was really dirty from all the wind we had before it froze. Was a few guys out later that caught some. Shallow lake that warms up quick but likes to get dirty win the wind blows. few people gettig some cats out there now.

I talked to the guy at the bait shop at Starbuck, he said the lake really got fished down in the past few years.

He also told me there is a gate in the river to prevent fish from entering Emily from Minnewaska.

Is there any truth to these statemants??? confused.gif

Thanks for your reply!

Yes, the baitshop person speaks the truth. It was hit with extreme presssure on a hot bite and is fished down. It is a fertile lake and will recover with time, at which point it will get fished down, and the cycle continues.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
