Pelican Access

36 posts in this topic

New to the area Breezy area. Could anyone help me out with where I can get on the lake during first ice? No 4 wheeler, just on foot. 

Do any resorts allow traffic off their shore?

there are 3 from the dnr lake finder website http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/lake.html?id=18030800 I think there is another one that is off of 118 on the south side of the lake and when I was over there last(2 or3 years ago) there was a sign that said winter access only but not sure.  I have always gone out of breezy point resort but ask here is the website http://breezypointresort.com/

There is an access you can use right at breezy point it is kind of by the marina  (docksider bar and grill)     I would say this is your best best early ice on foot you can fish the bay or hop over the sand bar onto the main lake if the ice is good from there it is easy walk to good fishing spots.

For walk on this time of the year to get to some fish able water this maybe your best bet. Walking in from Halverson Bay would be a bit of a trek. It's going to be a bit of a walk no matter which one you take.

There is a public access for ice fishing only, its not open in summer, that is off of 118 on the south side of the lake. I have use it for ice fishing many of times , and you can walk out  to ok fishing from access.

Thanks guys.

I've opted to go elsewhere thus far. That 118 access is the only plausable access for being on foot. May give it a shot this week.

only keepers could manage mixed in with 2 smaller ones a handful of small sunnies and a whitefish

 

night before was fishing the first break same area 16fow 2 walleyes

 

day before afternoon tipup fishing 3 bass 2 northern

 

8-9 inches of ice in the spot I was at

 

they plowed the access road from breezy across the bay to the main lake

seems like four-wheelers and snowmobiles is the way to go for now still.

Thanks for the report. Hope to get up there in a few weeks after the 1st. Anyone heading out passed Gooseberry on sleds yet? See any ridges out there? This year may be bad for ice ridges with all this back and forth weather. :(

we opted to not bring our sleds up which was a mistake. Cant tell you what the conditions are out that far but I can tell you if I would have brought my sled I would have been fishing around the island.

I didn't measure in the bay there if that is what you are looking for but Christmas weekend

I found around 8-9 inches where the red is

From the access at Breezy across the bay to the main lake they did plow a wide road with a four wheeler

hope that helps

That  from the navionics web app 

Go on your computer and look at it. I believe I changed it to sonar chart there should be a button in the lower left f the map to switch between normal and sonar I always scout my locations on it then plug them into my farm in before going out much easier to select spots on the big map rather than my farm in with the lake chip

Looked up a few of my marked spots on my GPS. Man I wish LakeMaster and Navionics saw the world as the same!!!!!! :angry:

I hit pelican today and went off the SW access and the ice was 9 to 10 in.  Ended up with 2 walleyes (18 and 11in) I was set up on the drop off just out side the bay of the access in about 16 FOW with my tip up in 25 ft got all fish in the house but did have the tip up go off 3 times but no luck getting them.  I did look towards the north and it look like there might be a small ice heave but to far to tell

Looks good They must have came out with that when they took away lakemaster from garmin? If it was around when I bought my gps I am sorry I didn't buy it

they must have I am used to lakemaster and when I bought my garmin my plan was just to use for my atv.  When I went searching for lakemaster chip for it and couldn't find any and this was my only option.  I got mine from reed sporting goods for $99 I think they retail for 130.  I don't know if you have seen the amount of lakes they have on it but when I have searched they have some lakes are WAY BACK in the woods that you could only access from a wheeler or a snowmobile  http://lakes.garmin.com/

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.
    • going4it
      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
