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

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
