This lake does see some action in the winter time. Some people spear out there, but quite a few people fish crappies out there in the winter as well. Most people I see out there are off to the left of the accesss about 150 yards in about 15 to 20 feet of water. I haven't fished out there in a couple of years, so I'm not what has been going on lately.

Hey Q -

Where\how do you fish crappies on Emma in the summer? We have a cabin on Lower Bottle and we hammer the crappies sometimes in July\August on the weedlines, but have never fished Emma for crappies.

May have to get in touch with you TJ when I come up for my week of fishing on Bottle (July 9-16).

Love the lake, but timing seems to usually be a little off trying to get those walleyes!!

I am lurking around here most of the year, so I would supply a report upon request.

Last year was the first in a while that the crappies did not bite well in July because of the lack of warm weather and weed growth by then.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?

      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
