      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Centerville Area?????

Recommended Posts

PerchSlayer    0

I am new to the area and was wondering if the Centerville area is a good area to put a small permanent house? I'm curious if there is anyone on here that puts their house on lakes in this area (Peltier, Centerville, Rice)or if there are any suggestions onto which lake would be best. We are looking for a night walleye bite. Thanks for the help.

Rice is really too shallow to be able to effectively fish, and it doesn't get the best ice either. Peltier and Centerville both have walleyes in them and I have caught them through the ice on both lakes. As far as which one is better, I couldn't tell you because I have had pretty even results on both lakes. It does get crowded out there and if you put a permanant house out, be warned, there are theives in the area.

Perchslayer! Rice Lake is very shallow. Much too shallow to put a house on. I am unsure how you would get a permanent house on Centerville Lake. The only access I know of that is open to the public is through the Anoka County Park and I don't know if they have any rules about such things as permanent houses? You might want to call them to be sure. Peltier is open to the public and has an excellent boat landing you could probably access the lake from and set up a permanent house on. Peltier is not the worst lake I have ever fished. Not GREAT mind you but not the worst either. I know of a lot of guys who have fished it over the years. Most guys I know prefer portables though because they are not stuck in one spot all winter long. They are NOT as pricey as they were when the came out too. Prices range from $99.00 for a one man "PAK SHAK" to around $600.00 for a "6 man Clam Sleeper" you can sleep in overnight if you want to.

Nonetheless, I think you would have trouble putting a permanent on Centerville because of access problems tothe lake. I may me wrong in this though. Check with the Anoka County Park. Rice Lake is more of a deep flooded slough. It is perhaps 3 or 4 feet deep. In my opinion your best bet would be Peltier for the reason I have listed. It had some nice Northerns, crappies, and the occasional decent size sunfish. I have not heard of anyone picking up any walleyes in Peletier for some years now. They may be still their just not as many or if they are getting them they are keeping quiet about it.

Another option for you might be to take a run up to Green, Chisago, or North and South Center lakes in the Chisago City, Lindstrom, Center City area.

The boat launch on Peltier is closed until next fall due to road construction.The only option on Peltier is off Old Mill Road. Or you may be able to get one on next to where the pier is. Either way a big permanent wouldn't be an option. A smaller one would be OK.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
