      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

3/2 Peltier Report

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

What a difference 2 weeks makes! Today Peltier was the dead sea today. There was only 1 vehicle out when I arrived, about 5 when I left. Centerville was a little busy, but not the circus it was 2 weeks ago. Anyway, caught 11 total, 5 little crappies and 6 decent sunnies. The rain and sleet cut my fishing early and I was off the ice by 3. Still nice to get out for a couple hours.

Glad to hear you got out i havent heard of any fish coming out of peltier since early ice. Maybe it is turning back around for late ice!

Later,

Ryan

More like it was hammered so hard early in the season there aren't many fish left. Then everyone moved over to Centerville and cleaned that one out pretty good also. They both have about a 3-4 yr cycle of decent fishing. Peltier seems to recover a little quicker.

peltier didn't recieve much pressue this winter at all.. centerville was a zoo this hardwater season. The lakes are definately not cleaned out, the fish just got a lot more picky. I do very well on peltier in the spring during open water for crappies, you can limit everyday if you find a nice school

I was out on Centerville a half dozen times or so this year and it has been a zoo. I haven't been out since the permanents came off, but I'm guessing it has gotten a little better. I stayed away from the crowds and did ok each time out.

Then you didn't see it from the time you could walk on until the fishing died off. It was a city. I live a block away.

3 places to try

1. In the middle of the south bay and towards north of the point.

2. Off Old Mill Road where it drops off to 11-12ft.

3. Near the aerator(Its not on) on the west side in 11-12ft.

Ron, I saw it early and saw it after the migration to Centerville. It has gotten absolutely pounded for the past few years but, that being said, it was a relatively light year for pressure compared to the past few years especially with the landing under repair. I liked it better when it froze out and was fishable every few years for quality fish versus the crowded conditions that there are out there nowdays. The fishing will get better on both lakes as the snow melts with some opps at some decent fish coming again late ice. I look foreward to those channel cats getting bigger and more prolific, what fun that is going to be.

I wanted to fish peltier in the spring, but from what I understand the access will still be closed...how would I be able to get a boat out there? Would it be possible (or frowned upon) to launch a small boat at the pier where people are driving on now?

Might be, depending on how many people are at the pier but you could always drag a small boat off the back of the truck and throw it in on the east side off Mill Rd. Then you won't bother anyone but it might be a bit of a chore getting it up the bank and back into the truck. Hopefully, things will have improved by the spring and if all else fails you can always put in on Centerville.

You could throw in a carry in type. A small 12ft or canoe. Also you can throw one in off Old Mill road. Watch for no parking signs. With the spring melt the road construction is going to get pretty busy. Old Mill might be your best bet.

Yeah, an april canoe outing on peltier wouldn't be bad at all. Especially if the panfish cooperated.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!

      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
