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 scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
