Pelican report

2 posts in this topic

Well heres my report for you diehards out there.

Fished pelican Tues. and Wendsday for 4 or 5 hours each day. Found a slow but consistent bite both days in 26 to 45 feet. Fish seemed to be scattered to me. When I caught one, I,d throw a marker, but wouldn't catch many more in that spot. Had to keep moving. Had my best luck on chartruse jigs with a stinger. Redtails and creekchubs. More bites on the 4" or so minnows, few on the small ones. Fish were averaging about 15", kept a couple of those each day for supper. Did throw about 3 or 4 20 to 23 inchers back each day. Pulled a boneheaded blunder Tues., erased my trails from my H2O cause they were getting cluttered.Then tried to get back to the Jones bay landing in the dark. Big mistake. Ran aground 8 or 9 times behfore finding my way through. Thought I was going to spend a cold night in the boat.

Hope to get out this weekend before putting the boat away, sigh...Hope we have good ice before the end of the season this year.

I was out last night from 3 to 7. I didnt have a bite till 5:15 and it was on from there. Caught a limit of 14"-18" released a fat 24" and let some smaller ones go. Caught all of the eyes in 26-28 feet. Jig and a fathead is all you need.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
