Pelican

How is the walleye bite on Pelican? Are they still hanging out on the weed edges or have they moved deeper? If they have moved deeper, what depth have people had success at?

We've had a few decent outings on Pelican recently. The fish were a bit scattered so we graphed areas until we located a pod of fish. We were using Lindy Rigs and leeches or redtails. The bigger fish all came on the leeches. 24 feet was the most consistent depth.

seems like they have moved deeper. The water temp really warmed up, which probably did the job. Were getting some on shad raps in 12-15, but last time out the slimers were even slow

Are the bass still in the bays or have they moved out now? If so, where are people targeting them and how?

Youll still get some bass in the bays. This last weekend was the fishing tournament me and my bro attended. We caught a lot of bass, many were small but about a dozen 16 inchers, so that was fun. The majority of the bass are on the flats. In the bays they stick to that vegetation near the bottom in that 4-8 ft range. On the main lake some of the bigger fish were coming out of those flats. Texas rigs were successful along with top water.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
