Pelican Lake

6 posts in this topic

Hi there. I am looking at renting a place on Pelican Lake this year and an wondering what the fishing is like? What do most people fish for on the lake? I am not looking for any special spots just general info. Thanks

Are you talking the Pelican Lake by Glenwwod or by Fergus. If it's the one by Glenwood it's a good early season lake, but once it starts getting into late June and July it gets really weedy and big algea blooms. It does have walleyes and panfish in fairly good numbers, bass I'm not sure on.

The one by glenwood is such a dirty polluted lake. I've caught quite a few crappies from shore, it does have some good walleyes in there.

It's got bass too. I've only fished it twice I think, but know of others that have caught bass. I don't fish them myself.

I would guess the pike action would be pretty good in there?

From what I know it's pretty average, nothing outstanding.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

      Anyone going out for the opener this weekend? I'll be too busy trout fishing, but I'm all booked up for the month of May on the Croix

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
