Demontreville Lake

Recommended Posts

Craigums

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!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
