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.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
    • Wakemup
      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
