This is a tough lake. Lot's of fish but they can get lockjaw . Mark them all over but they don't like to play.
People tend to jig on the west end and tipup fish the east end.
They are in there but my advice for taking a kid fishing would not be this lake. There are a lot of options within a 30 minute circle of Amherst.
Planning to take my grandson out for his first time ice fishing on January 29th. He lives 10 minutes from Lake Emily.
Can anyone tell me the best spot on this lake to find fish for him? I'll do tip ups and jigging. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Not looking for secret spots just some fish action.
I'm from Madison. If you need any advice on the Madison chain of lakes, I'm happy to share.
Thanks in advance.
If anyone knows/found anything - PM me please! Can provide more detail of lost items then.
