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 speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      Sounds like a fair deal Boney, booze for bait works for me. i am starting to prep the boat and gear, too. cant wait.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
