Fished yesterday evening and caught 5 LM largest 17" and 1 northern about 16". All caught on a wacky rigged worm in green color. Was surprised the water temp ranged from 68.8 to 74 depending on where I was. Had my few beers so no fish cleaning so they are still swimming. If it ever stops raining might go out tonight for awhile.

Just spent two hours on the lake. 21 crappie (16 keepable) 6 gills (1 keepable) and 1 11" large mouth. On minnows and gulp very shallow right near shore. Needless to say I had a few beers and didn't want to clean fish so they are all swimming until I catch them again.

First off that is Hat Rapids Flowage. If you search on Hat Rapids there are three treads listed. Not to current but might give you an idea. They run the river cruise ship on it so it should be safe if you go slow. No messenger turned on so I had to answer this way!

I know this is a little of course but does any one have any information on hot rapids flowage? I cant find any info on lakelink, or any of my fishing maps, and just a little bit on the web. Is it a decent fishing lake? What kind of fish are in it? I see it's a flowage, is there many navigation hazards? How's the launch? What's the depth like? I have an 18 ft deep ft, is that too big for it? Any info would help. Thank you very much!

I didn't see any fish by the boat near the landing when I looked a couple weeks ago. There were smaller gills in the cribs around there. All the bigger gills I found were in one crib on the North side of the lake. Nothing huge...8" max.

I was up here once during summer and it was a very fun, quiet little lake. It was easy find some cribs right by the landing without any sonar, was filled with smaller gills. Can anyone explain how the sunken boats got in there and where they are located? You don't have to if they are a good fishing spot as the one post exclaims. Big Smile

I fished a few of the cribs this afternoon for gills and Crappie. Caught lots of gills. Most were in the 5 to 7 inch range. I got on one crib that had bigger ones between 7 and 8. Could have kept a limit if a guy was hungry for a fish fry. Crappies bit right before dark. 9 to 11 inches. Everything quit after dark.

On the way off the lake I marked the location of one of the sunken boats and 3 cribs right off the landing. If anyone's interested in checking them out with a camera or catching some gills. Look for orange paint.

electronicguideservice.com just released their high-def mapping product for this lake. 3' contours, weed lines, bottom composition and coordinates for a total of 35 cribs and two sunken boats. I have been fishing most of these cribs this winter and doing good on crappies and gills.

This lake is right down the road from my place. I've fished crescent lots over the years but never fished Emma. Till today. Glad I did. Fished 3-5PM. Caught a mess of gills and some crappies. Ate well for dinner. Threw lots back. Young girl fishing with her dad a few holes down caught a fat 14 crappie Smile. All in all had a fun couple hours. Would like to locate da sunken boat. *also. Noticed the fish in this lake have a bluer hue than other area lakes. Makes for beautiful fish.

I saw a funny thing out here today.....

Last summer, when I was scanning the lake bottom, I found this sunken boat. Well, I thought I would drop the camera down and take a look at it today. It looks like an old wooden boat, but what surprised me was that it was full of bluegills and crappies!

I sat there and caught about 20 gills.

Looks like this old boat is still useful!

My son and I fished out here for a couple hours yesterday afternoon. We caught lots of gills. Most were smaller that 7 inches, but we ended up with a meal of 7 to 7 1/2 inchers. Also one 9 inch crappie and a 15 inch smallmouth. We hopped around to a few different cribs in about 8 feet of water. Smaller fish then the last time I was out here but it was still fun! Four shacks on the lake! I think that's the most I've seen out here.

Not much activity on this page. That's too bad because this is an awesome lake! I spent the afternoon catching crappies and bulegills. My friends at Electronic Guide Service hooked me up with some information for this lake. I fished a few cribs and some inside turns with suspended crappies. Chartruse jigs and waxies seemed to do the trick on the 'gills. The crappies were hitting glow jigs with a white tail. The crappies run small at about 7 to 9 inches with a few biggers ones. The 'gills were nicer. I caught a lot of different sizes from 5 to 9 inches, but there are a lot in that 8 to 9 inch range. The photos tell the story.... I kept a half dozen for the fry daddy (they were DELISH!!) and the rest are still swimming.

Ice conditions... Slush is BAD in some areas. In one spot I was sitting in 4 inches of water. Stay on the snowmobile tracks and it's not too bad. About 8 inches of ice.

Tight Lines!

Went out on Emma, Sunday July 26. Fished for muskies around the entire lake and didn't manage to raise a fish. Was throwing a bucktail. Then resorted to fishing the lily pads for a bass so I didn't get skunked on the trip. Is there any trick, lure, or spot to find some muskies on this lake? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
