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:)

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
