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.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
