Fall Preference: Pelican for this guy!

Recommended Posts

Bison9

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 heard that it was still open 10-14 days ago but with this cold it should be making ice quickly.  I was on a bigger lake Saturday and we had 7-8" on a lake that reopened last week when it warmed up.  I'd be very nervous about going across the lake especially crossing any deep water holes.  The next 7 days should be making very good ice though if weather holds true.

      Good share. I'm really itching to get out on some of those local lakes. I was thinking of trying today but I'm going to hold off now.

      Thanks again, Don. Really do appreciate the updates!

      That's what happened to mine too.

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.

      north metro lake had consistent 2-2.5" yesterday around noon. Headed back tonight to check a couple  more lakes.  It would be nice to hit 4-5" before warm weather sets in  later this week
