My buddy was on east end late at night and was using a spot light. Saw some nice bass and a few nice walleyes and very big bluegills.  I have not ventured there.  Been busy on the Wisconsin River.  Got my biggest ever fish today, about a 50" sturgeon...

Thanks very much

Crawdaddy - my profile is correct. We have had a cabin on Emily for 3 generations and have been fishing there for nearly 40 years. I Frequent Delevan, Eagle, Geneva  and others here in SE - but Emily will always hold a very special place for me. In addition I have caught several crazy, crazy nice fish out of Emily that keeps me coming back.

Just curious Bassinemily....why are you so big on fishing on Lake Emily?  If your profile is accurate,  you are from outside of Racine.  Seems an odd choice of lakes given the nickname from the locals...Lake Empty.

Don't get me wrong.  I have caught thousands of fish on Emily in my lifetime, but I fished it out of necessity when I was young and had to fish areas I could bike to.  I still live in the area, but I almost never fish Emily because I have so many better options...

Ice has been out for a few weeks.  Go on sunny days on shallow north shore areas after 300 pm for panfish.
