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.

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first. 
    • IceHawk
      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks

      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
