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

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
