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.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?
