Pelican Lake report

6 posts in this topic

Hit Pelican last night and fishing till 10:30 p.m.

We caught about 30 nice sunnies and a mixed bag of other fish included the dreaded rock bass.

No walleyes. ZIP.

Three guys and the big goose egg.

This is the first time we have been shut out on Pelican. First time ever.

The kicker -- we tried everywhere in every depth. We hit it hard. We hit all ofr the hot spots and nothing going.

The funny thing was, every place we went we hit sunnies. We caught them in 25 feet of water after dusk -- Now that is strange.

Anyone else getting any?

We had a Bass tournament there last Saturday. It was slooooow. Out of 25 teams,5 fish limit,the winning weight was just over 13 lbs.! Normally,that wouldn't get you in the top 5. I think Friday nights weather played a big roll in the tough bite.

Altough this year,the people on thier docks weren't as rude as last year:)

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
