Any pelican updates?

8 posts in this topic

Pelican was pretty good last week or two at night for walleyes, wondering if anyone has been out there the last couple nights? I'm taking a couple friends who want to fish, and the mayflies shut down Big C, so wondering if the same thing has happened on Pelican?

was out thursday night. Got on the water about 5. First spot started fishing WHAM walleye just a hair short. Threw back. Couldn't catch a walleye after that. Graphed them in 22 feet of water and 30 not in between. Ended up trying 5 spots on the lake nothing but snakes and rock's. Ended up right before dark saying screw it and throwing raps trying for a ski but nothing bit.

Code --

That is the way it goes. Did you end up at Zorbaz like we do?

Yeah -- I have Zorbaz on my cell phone. Nothing better than some zaaa or macho nacho after a day of fishing. cool.gif

Oh, and the beverages and scenery isn't bad either.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Ended up going to Upper Cormorant for a few hours in the AM. Snagged a few slimers and pannies. Nice day on the water til about noon or so with all the boaters. Hope everyone had/is having a good 4th holiday.

      Dad and I fished this past Saturday and Sunday with portables and saying the fishing was slow would be an understatement. Between the 2 days we hit the mud flats pretty hard and stayed very mobile. Didn't even set up a house during the day because it was so nice out. We fished the mudflats from East Flat down to Blue Jug, over to 8 Mile and back up to Matton Flat. The day bite was very tough, we would mark fish but they wouldn't want much to do with it. We picked up 3 eyes Saturday morning with the biggest being 17" then picked up only 3 more during the day. They only seemed to hit our dead sticks with a shiner on it. We used mainly VMC gold perch tingler spoons and flutter spoons without much luck jigging. On Saturday night we had a sleeper rented from Twin Pines Resort and our house was in 20'. We had 6 bites throughout the night with a bigger fish breaking off and a couple smaller ones being caught. We really had to give them a lot of time to inhale the shiner. On Sunday we went back out to the Mud Flats with little confidence and the fishing was pretty slow again. Didn't hear many good reports from this weekend, not sure if it was the warm weather along with the pressure system or what.

      I think your best bet would be the narrows on Pelican. That can be pretty good crappie and walleye area. I usually fish it a couple times earlier in the season. Otherwise closer to Battle Lake you could give South Turtle or East and West Lost a try.

      I thought Clitherall was pretty good but never fished panfish down there.  I fish mainly the Perham/DL area.   Panfish have been very skitish as of lately.  We have been using mainly 4mm and 5 mm jigs for crappies but the panfish are wanting 3 mm jigs.  Best luck has been with a horizontal shapped jig tipped with 2-3 wax worms (depending on hook and wax worm size) very lightly jigged.  Most of the action has been once they appear is to reel up above them 5-8 feet then slowly drop down stopping 1-2 feet above them and twitching the jig LIGHTLY.  Anything with a "GLOW" has been killer for paints.  The lakes I've been fishing have almost a foot of snow and the water was merky prior to freeze up so even though the sun is up I'm still hitting the jigs with the UV Light and the fish are instantly reacting.  I've been targetting deeper holes and finding them in that 20-30' mark but I've heard some reports that they have started coming back up into the shallows and hitting the green weeds again.  Crappies right away this year were liking the 5 mm jigs tipped with a wax worm and soft plastic suspended but they have started preferring smaller jigs also.  Hope this helps you some.

      Caught a few walleyes on o'dowds this weekend. Was marking a lot of fish on the bottom but very skidish and not willing to bite very well. Anyone else have any luck on o'dowds?
