Hey there,

I have a buddy coming home from Arizona and promised him some bass fishing tomorrow, friday... was thinking Mille Lacs but the travel time might not fit. Any bass reports for DeMontreville out there? I was out about a month ago and the fish were coming off post spawn.

Thanks in advance for any comments!

Fish the big point in the evening. Also the channel between Olson. Ther is a smaller point that holds fish as well. Docks ussually produce.

Thanks Commonsense Guy! Just wanted to clarify your response, is the smaller point your referring to in Demontreville or Olson? I have been through the channel as well and it seems that it's not that big to establish too much of a pattern out of? Lastly, docks, those seem to be a given this time of year, think I should concentrate on the Demontreville ones or Olson docks?

Thanks for the feedback, will let you all know how i do if i we go there!

Check the flat in the left corner of Demontriville before the channel.(The bay to the left). There is weeds usually out in 12ft or so but up in about 6-8ft they get thicker and hold some fish. Alos fish the bigger deeper clumps in the area. Here is a little known fact about the lake. they are filled with trees. I'm talking ones that are about 10ft tall! Most are in Olson. After ice out when the water is the clearest, the sun is high, and the water calm you can see a few in 15-17ft. Most are just straight vertical with little or no branches. (I have looked with the camera) but there is a group of them off the point on olson in about 15ft that have a lot of branches.(if your looking at the point they are on the left, 15ft). The best fishing however is out in the middle of olson. There is a house almost straight across from the point that has a bunch of sand(a mini beach). Out in front of that is a good cluster. Pretty much out in the middle of the lake in about 15ft. I was out there only once last year(can't remeber the month) but there was big clumps of coontail growing up from around some of the trees. Look for those clumps and drop a jig into them. Good luck.

Two weekends ago, I had a couple guys come in from Baltimore and they wanted to try bass fishing. I took them to Turtle Lake in Shoreview. We had a blast. They said it was the highlite of their trip. Caught 29 bass and 1 walleye.

There is a smaller point on the oposite side on demontreville. Also check the deep weedling on Olson. There are some nice Northerns lurking around

Thanks for all the responses! We ended up getting out there around 7:00 am yesterday and had some fun. We tried the areas mentioned above in Demontreville and had good success with white spinner baits over the top of the weeds near the channel. we also hit the docks on the west side of olson with good success, it was watermelon and june bug senkos that did the trick under the pontoons, the fish were only found under the pontoons. maybe one of 8 dock bass came from the side or front. largest was 18 3/4"

anyway, my buddy had a blast htanks for the tips!

      I had a great weekend the weather was decent and fishing was good. I caught 5 walleyes 21"-25", 4 northerns largest was 32" and a 17 largemouth opening day. 2 more walleyes, 2 crappies 2 northerns on Sunday all on jig and minnows.

      We had a good opener as well we could have kept limits opening day, but just kept enough for a fish fry. Then Sunday had our little friendly tourney and everyone had a pretty good day. Pulling cranks and jigs n minnows caught fish.

      Had a great opening weekend. Son and I boated 51 walleye between Saturday and Sunday. Plenty of small stuff but no problem getting some nice keepers. This is a pic of the best weekend fish for us.

      I was on Rice this weekend also. Seen boat lifts with water up to the canopy. I was the only one to catch a fish out of the hole campground It was about a 6" crappie.

      We had a pretty good weekend. There were two couples and we limited out both Saturday and Sunday. The eyes we kept were all 15-17”.  We caught many 10-14” eyes and one 26” which was returned to the water immediately. All on a variety of jigs in 18-35’ of water. As usual the women out fished both of us😀

      Wrong area, sorry.

      I will second the advice on watching out for floating debris.  We saw a lot of floating logs and deck sections this weekend.  Also, most hazard and navigation buoys were not out yet.  I wonder how many lower units and props were destroyed this weekend?  It would be dicey if you don't know the lake.

      I will admit it.  Zero walleyes in two days of fishing.  We fished shallow and deep and marked a lot of fish in 16-20' and had a few weak bites.  A friend of mine caught 6 walleyes on Sunday but worked hard for them and he has fished the lake his entire life.  Got a few crappies in Black Bay.  I was shocked at how few boats were out, definitely a reflection of late ice out and how few docks are in because of the high water.  My fishing partner drove back to the TC on Sunday night and traffic was surprisingly light.  I'm guessing late ice out discouraged a lot of fishermen from coming north.  We need some warm dry weather.

      Not the report I wanted to hear for the first one.  At least your honest as a lot of guys may not want to admit it!   Well nothing wrong with crappies.  We’re they shallow?  And what bait were you using?   Stillfishin’
