      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

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.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.
