Demontreville + Olson report

Recommended Posts

Slyster

This lake is REALLY clear. Clearest lake I've ever fished on. Must have been able to see the bottom 12+ feet. Saw LOTS (thousands) of small sunnies.. but didn't catch a single thing! I was out for 6 long hours. First time on the lake.

I tried many things.. mostly Mister Twister type spinners with powerbait grubs.. many colors. Either it was them... or me... or the weather?

I know there are BIG bass there.. I found one floating on the water.. it was huge! Biggest bass I think I have ever held.. was pretty fresh and had a large hook deep in the throat and broken line. frown.gif Maybe one of you loss a big one on broken line very recently? He was in good shape.. must have died today.

Any tips for the lake for my next attempt?

From what I know, that lake is a C&R only lake. I was thinking bout fishing that lake because I live right by it but haven't had the chance to yet.
I know they stock northerns, bass, eyes and pan fish there though

I was out on Saturday and did alright. Caught some 14-16inchers, and lost 2 pigs. Got one of them up next to the boat. I usually don't catch a lot but the ones I catch are large. I do best finding the weed flats and working over the top with plastics.

Hello High Water

Slyster,

Olsen is outstanding for Bass! Demontraville is a little tougher to nail them one after the other. I was out till 2:30 a.m. last night and couldnt keep the 4 pounders away. You need to get yourself some Heddon tiny torpedos. Doesn't matter day/night rain/shine. Hit the first 10ft. inside the weed line on either the south shoreline or north bay (first one to the right from the channel)and they will come like carp to corn. Oh yeah FISH IT SLOW. Hope this helps your next outing to this great metro lake. smile.gif

Sorry to hear about the dead pig. People should really beef up their line. These fish head to the bottom of the thick cabbage and you really gotta wrestle them out.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
