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

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
