I took a look at the DNR's website an they have stocked a ton of walleyes there in past years. Other than that it looks like there is a ton a Crappies and even more Blugills. I have never fished that lake but it looks like one that could produce at first ice and now later in the season...like now.

There are a lot of panfish in this lake just the DNR reports indicate, but boy are they small. You are lucky to get 9 in. crappies, most of them are 7 inches.

Like they said tons of panfish, but they are small. I have been out there 4 times this year and did well everytime, but small. There are some big ones I have seen them on the camera.

For those of you who may (or may not know) this lake produced the state record White Crappie (3 lbs.-15 ozs), but after the word got out...the lake was literally fished out of it's sizeable crappies, and much of what's left are stunted, due to overpopulation of several year class fish that have fought for the little forage produced in there.

It's definitely a fun lake...You'll see schooling fish on the Vexilar (stacked 10' thick sometimes!), and start catching 50-100 fish, but having to sort through them tiny, little sunnies to bring home 10 crappies around 8-9" gets boring after awhile...great to take a child or a spouse to, who doesn't fish much...

I can catch a limit of Crappies any day of the week on Constance. But like mentioned before they are all small. This year I will keep all the Crappies that I catch there. Try to thin out the population.

If you are on the west access I have caught fish straight out from you where there is a point that gets deeper quicker(Northside of the lake), caught them east of that point(out from the north east corner) where there are normally alot of fish houses, and I have caught them directly to the south of west access a few hundred yards where there are normally a few spear houses. I was only out there once this year and did ok at best. Alot of sorting through the little ones to find a meal.

You are correct there won't be any permanents out there! I normally punch about 5 or 6 holes there starting at about 20' or so into 10' or so. But ackotz is right when you find them they are usually grouped up good.

Well Panolo, there are no fish houses out there (for reference). It's pretty much deserted now...not one person out there last Sunday, when we went...

Whateverbites:
Most people (and myself included), have had decent luck fishing anywhere along the steep bank the runs along the road. It drops to 22' pretty quickly. Another good spot, is an area about 200 yards straight out from the boat ramp. When I say "straight out" I actually mean, (if you were standing on the ramp) draw a line to the opposing shoreline, about 2 o'clock. Go out from the ramp in that general direction, about 200 yards or so. You'll have to punch some holes...but you'll see schooling pods of fish. Unfortunately, they could be Sunfish or Crappies, and sometimes both! (and almost always small fish!!)

      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.

      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.
