Peltier Report (2/17)

2 posts in this topic

Hit up peltier today. The wind picked up where it left yesterday. Wasn't too bad while the sun was out, but once it clouded up it got chilly. Marked lot's of fish but they weren't very active...had to change colors a few times before I finally got a bite (orange was the ticket). All the fish were 8 to 11 ft below the ice in 15 ft of water. Caught 2 little crappies, 1 nice sunny, and 1 nice fat perch. The wind buried my tip in snow, took me awhile to find and dig it out. crazy.gif

Peltier was relatively dead as far as fisherman go, while centerville looked like the state fair on ice! Is the action really that much hotter over there than on peltier?

Not exactly.. As far as size I had done better on peltier in the previous years. Last year peltier got hit very hard, while centerville looked naked. This year it's the other way around. Centerville is consistent for crappies n sunnies, some people are finding a walleye here and there, and there are alot of pike fairly shallow. Last year I fished centerville but never kept the crappies, they were all 7 to 8 inches. This year it's been a great bite and there are alot of small crapps but starting to seein a rise in size. I limited on all 9 to 10"s. Haven't been out for a couple weeks now, but find 15-16 FOW, euros and smaller crappies minnows (centermart right by the lake has perfect size minnows) and they will bite all night long.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
