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

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
