Okay, just got back from Centerville lake and can confirm that lake is 8-10" thick. Towards the center where its deepest (15-20') can be 10"+ thickness. I've seen many tents and plenty of snowmobiles out today. "Warning" there are parts that are still cover in snow (4-6") and can be slushy.
I didnt get there untill 3:30 pm, it was slow at first, but around 6pm it was picking up pretty good. Caught over 2 dozen crappies. The fishes were average to small, nothing to big. I was hoping for perch or atleast some walleyes... but no luck. left home around 8pm.
I heard the perch have been biting of late. I've been told to fish 6-10 feet of water with a crappie minnow on glow in the dark hook also that it's makes all the difference if you cut the belly of the minnow. When i was told about them my friend was excited but he stressed it was important to cut the belly of the minnow and try to keep it alive which he said made the difference between bites and no bites.
