Demontreville Lake

2 posts in this topic

I've fished this lake a few times this winter for panfish. Everytime I end up finding the fish they are just little 5 inch sunfish that I can't keep of my hook and they light up the flasher like a christmas tree. I've been seaching for crappies and absolutely cannot find them. Is there any decent panfish in that lake or is the entire population stunted?

Also Would the crappies be in the same location as these little sunfish or am I in the totally wrong place?

I fished Demontreville quite a bit last year, but have only been out a couple times this year. I also burnt out on the small fish and tried a few spots where there weren't many people. There is a deep hole (20ft+) around the other side of the lake. The action there was much slower, but a few bigger (relative) fish were mixed in. Probably 3 sunnies for every 1 crappie, and had to really pick through for any keepers.

I had some pretty good tip-up action for small northerns along some of the weedlines in the shallow part of the lake.

Good Luck!

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
