I have had a cabin in Emily for about four years now and I have fished several area lakes with very spotty success for walleyes.  Would anyone be willing to share, PM if you choose, if Thunder is worth trying and the type of structure that the fish relate to.  Most of the walleye I catch in the area are incidental to crappie or bass fishing in the weeds.  Do the fish relate to the weeds or are they on the more traditional structure?  Is there a preferred bait or presentation?  Thank you.

I have only fished that lake once and it was mid-day in July.  Lots of good action for largemouth and smallmouth bass.  We did not have a ton of luck looking for walleye as dusk approached.  It was like a wind tunnel with the wind coming out of the north.  It is very scenic with the high hills surrounding the lake.  Sorry I can't be of much help, but that is my 2 cents.

Thanks for answering the post.  I like catching bass, especially SM if I can find them, so it sounds like a lake to try during the day and see what happens from there.

I’m heading up there this weekend.  I’ll be fishing for Bass specifically.

the maps look like there is a ton of fishable structure.  I’m hoping to find the weed line and work a few areas.

I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      From where it is, I would guess ATT if anything.     https://www.att.com/maps/wireless-coverage.html (zoom in and enter zip code for that area.  Cook is 55723 so that's a start.  Looks like ATT has coverage.  Tmobile roams on ATT.

      Heard browns fight but nothing like steelhead. took probably 20 min to get mine in.

      I've personally spent years catching crappie with minnows.  Usually I will drop a dead stick with a minnow and jig another line with a waxie. Have similar luck on each rod. Always depends on what the fish want of course. I like to give them the most options.

      Always dreamed of getting out and exploring other great lakes. Got to fish Lake Superior a few times out of Duluth and it changes my ice fishing life!

      Heading to the Virginia Mn area Ice fishing in a few weeks. I've fished the Duluth area most of my life but finally spreading out a bit.  Not hoping to get anyones "spot". How are ice conditions? Anywhere to stay away from safety wise? Any dead lakes that would be a waste of my time on a limited trip? Thanks yall

      Always looks like a blast with those jawjackers or auto fisherman.  Fighting those big Browns and steelhead on a short rod through a hole in the ice on light line would be fun.
