In need of help........ My brother and my Father and I are going to Pelican Lake in or around Breezy point...... How is the fishing? We are used to Itasca County/Marcell area... Any help would be great!!!! I know there is some wicked structure on this particular body of water, If anyone knows some spots - I'd love to hear about them! Thanks, Jeff

At dark you can pick some walleyes up on the weedlines, but during the day they are going to be very deep. Like 50ft plus. I am not sure where because I haven't been up there in a while, but I do have a cabin on the lake. I would also pull some crank baits at night as well.

Good deal..... We're not going until the end of September, so a lot of things could change. Any decent pike fishing????

I catch a few Pike lindy rigging or pulling spinners for walleyes. I have never targeted them in the lake, but I have caught a lot over the years. If you just like action, the rock bass are all over the place as well and can give some excitement at the end of your line as well. Personally, I think they are annoying, but to each their own. Crankbaits in sept. should work for just about anything.

Not a fan of Rocko....... Usually hit the 'eyes and smallies pretty hard. Haven't heard much about the bass fishing. Actually have never heard of smallies in Pelican. Pike and walleyes, maybe some perch. We'll head towards Marcell for a couple days on Turtle and Maybe a Flyrod attack on Graves...... Might get on Spider for a Half day of Muskies....... Could care less if I ever see a rock bass. We usually make a ton of spinner rigs in advance,so we oughtta be set. Thanks. -Jeff

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.

      I went to lake osakis and got my butt handed to me. I fished hard and cut holes for deep to shallow. I tried about everything in my bag of tricks to get them gills and crappies to bite. Nothing was working from 2mm jigs with a euro or micro plastic to jigging spoons. For fishing all day I caught one 8 inch bluegill. But I am looking at it as a learning experience and will help me be thankful for those slower days I have. I am going to hit a couple winter kill lakes this weekend. Best of luck to you all
