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.

LOST - A friend of mine lost a rod/reel and some tackle out of his truck. Thinks it may have come out around CTH-B and J just east of Plover.

If anyone knows/found anything - PM me please! Can provide more detail of lost items then.

Thank you!

Fished the far east bay today 3-5pm. Set up in 23fow jigging. Caught 4 crappies (7-9in), one small bluegill and missed as many bites. Marked fish almost the whole time 1-4ft off the bottom. A purple bratner jig with a red plastic tail got the most attention. Full-size trucks were driving out. I didn't measure, but the ice was around 16in. Tight lines!

Went out on Lake Emily Sunday afternoon going for some northern. Saw a lot of boats anchored in the west bay likely going after panfish. Cruised the south shoreline and caught 8 northern and had 6 other strikes on a black/gold twitchbait. Nothing of any size but they're still fun to catch! Lots of people joyriding in pontoons and even more people on the beach. Weather was absolutely beautiful and it was nice just to be out on the water.
