Pelican lake, Orr

3 posts in this topic

I will be on Pelican lake for a long weekend. I go up there every year as part of a company camping deal. We ussually have no problem catching big pike and bass and lots of little panfish, but was wondering if anyone had any tips on catching eyes there. I hear of them being caught, but none of us has ever caught one and I plan to focus a little more this year on trying to catch an eye or 2. Any help would be appreciated.

I was just up there a couple weeks ago and we only caught 3 eyes, and lost a nice one at the boat. But if you can believe this or not, we caught all of them around the noon time. The evening bite was slow with just bass and pike biting. But we caught those eyes on the outside edges of the 36' hole in the middle of the lake in 14 fow using a jig and leech. Hope this helps! Becareful, none of the reefs are marked, so you'll have to keep an eye out for them. Don't want a weekend wrecker up there. Good luck!

Thanks for the info. This will be about my 8th time up there so I know how dangerous the lake can be. Our group has about 4-6 boats each year and it seems like someone always hits something that cause damage.
