Pelican Lake West of St Micheal

3 posts in this topic

Does any one know what's in this lake... this is no information on the DNR Website... how deep?, kinds of fish?, boat access?

I may move to the area and just curious about the lake. Any info would be great.

I don't know a whole lot, but if you look in the Annandale/buffalo/big lake forums there is a few posts. From what I gather access is a bit scetchy. There is a public access on the west side. I think its about 13ft deep. Pretty much a panfish lake.

Lake has big crappies in it as well as some nice gills but they are hard to track down. Quite a few people do fish around the south access. North end gets to 12ft deep and is just one big basin so fish roam alot. DNR is planning to draw the lake down to improve duck habitat. It is not managed as a fishable lake. Access right now is difficult as the public access is at south end and the lake is fairly large.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
