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:)

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
