I'll be up in the area starting out on Pelican Friday. Does anybody have any info on whats going on there? How about any suggestions for other lakes to hit in the area over the weekend. We are bringing up some boys and a guy from Illinois and his son. Crappies on Pelican? Walleyes?

If you've never fished Pelican, all I can say is, beware of the rocks. It's one of the most dangerous lakes I know. Invest in a map and pay attention to it. The crappies have been going nuts up there the last two weeks. All spawned out and eating everything in sight, thank God for the lower limits because everyone’s catching fish. Fish the usual suspects; the lake is loaded with structure. Also, Pelican is loaded with nice Bass, both Small and Large mouth. Throw some top water stuff and hang on. Good luck.

THanks Kidd. Are you telling me I should take my brand new four blade prop off and run on my old one? Are the marker bouys sufficient or are the low water levels up there creating a whole new problem? I have been on the lake before but stuck to the area around Orr in the past. I was hoping to cover some more water this year. Any other suggestions? An aquaintence suggested going to Elephant. 1/2 half of our party is in to walleyes and crappies the other half is into bass and northerns. It looks like we will have fun either way, as long as we don't clip a rock. Thanks again

There are no marker buoys, use the old prop.
Pelican has some nice walleye's in it but the numbers aren’t there. The best lake in that area for walleye is Black Duck, which is right down the road from Elephant. Elephant has the nicest crappies but can be difficult to locate. Try the second point down from Melgeorges resort (It's the only one on the lake) and fish both sides of the rock point. No guarantees, but that's where I would start.
Good Luck
