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 for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
