Pelican Lake

5 posts in this topic

Looking for some basic info on Pelican. We would like to try and pound the ice a bit this winter and need to know some general areas and spots to get on the lake.

Any help would be great

There is a public boat landing in Orr, right behind the stores.

Do they fish Orr bay or just use it as an access? I see it's very shallow but for gills that can be a good thing.

Cant help with ice fishing, I cant stand it, but I do fish it in spring/summer for bass. Orr bay is VERY shallow, and with no rain this summer, its way down.

Well I haven't ice fished Pelican before but can tell you that between Cope and Peterson island and Berns Island is the deepest part of the lake about 40 ft at its deepest point. We call it the crappie hole. The rest of the lake is in bad shape and has been the last few years because of the lack of rain. We had been going there annually but got tired of bust props and lower units. Aside from that hole the average lake depth is less than ten feet. They have great resorts but I'd go to another lake until the rain comes back. I think the lake needs some time away from fishing pressure.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
