The future of Constance

Recommended Posts

Kyle Sandberg

I made it out today and into the night, and I must say the future for this small lake looks bright. My buddies and I caught a lot of fish, not much for size, but if it's a precurser for things to come, we should be seeing some nice fish come out of there. Another thing that struck me as odd was that we caught three bullhead at NIGHT. I thought bullhead went dormant during the winter and became somewhat dormant. Eyeguy12, right after you left, I went over to your holes and caught a decent crappie.

Good Fishing

I belive that lake has a reputation of small fish, or is moving in that direction which is bad. over fishing of the larger pannys has allowed the runts to spawn, which is not good. a good example is big and mitchell lakes, were full grown gills are only 6 inches. frown.gif

I understand what you mean, but we were catching big numbers of 4-6 inch crappies. Like the young of the year. Looks promising.

The spring bite in the little bay in the woods has been a slaughter the past couple of springs. I fish there quite a bit and see people keeping limit after limit. I've heard simmiler ice tales. The lake is too small for that kind of harvest. (I have too let everything I catch go) I heard the same thing happened in less than one winter on a small lake south of Constance two winters ago.

A little selective harvest could go a long way on lakes like these.

I agree. lots of little fish could mean stunting of growth and a lot of fighting for food.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      It’s still a blast to fish

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
