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'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
