Fall Preference: Pelican for this guy!

7 posts in this topic

Well Boys - my Fall tirade of the MN lakes is about to begin. With the great luck I had last year in Pelican on some frosty Fall nights, I can't think of any other place to begin for the Fall Walleye action. I got a little taste of some good fishing this weekend out at my buddy's place (Jewitt Lake by Fergus). We were going for eyes, but nailed a good mess of 10 - 15 inch crappies. Those were some of the best lookin crappies I've ever caught!

Anyways, I will be hitting Pelican this Friday night for a little walleye action. Also, anybody can feel free to post where their Fall adventures for walleyes will be taking place this year. smile.gif It's finally out of the office and on to the water for this guy! Good luck to all!

Hiya -

Monday morning about 5:30 I sat at the end of my driveway with a boat behind me that had bass, walleye, panfish and muskie gear in it, and I couldn't decide what to fish or or where because it was all sounding good. Does make you realize what an embarassment of riches we have when it comes to fishing - fall, or any other time of year.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Bison --

I am also looking forward to fall fishing. Just about went last night but I went Goose Hunting instead. What a waste af time.

Pelican is my favorite as well, but with all the action on Big C this summer I think that might be worth a try as well. I also plan on hitting Lida, White Earth and Strawberry. a couple of times.

You know i wish i would have the determination to go out and fish in the fall but i am so busy doing other things. I hunt deer, ducks, geese, and make a couple weekend trips to ND for some pheasants. So i am busy but i really want to learn how to fish White Earth and Pelican in the fall some year bc i have heard it can be the best fishing of the year.

Fished Lida yesterday. Took the folks out. Got outfished by Mom 5 walleyes to 4. And Dad? Well, Dad got pretty good at netting fish for us. Found the fish in 23-26 feet of water. More on nightcrawlers than fatheads, but both caught fish.

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.

    • Yep it is the 3 S's - I just don't think a lot of people are going to be grouse hunting with a shovel - but not a bad idea.

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400. 

      Thanks for the Update, I think that I did see less birds out on Edwards as well later this summer. Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :)
