Great family vacation lake, but if I were looking for a fishing trip I would go to Kab-Nam-Crane or Rainy. Of course if you like pan fish then the lake is about as good as it gets for action. The kids love it. After mid-June there are lots of weeds in the bays and deeper waters around the islands. Water is stained.

Pelican Lake is one of the best lakes. 1st week of june is best. If you go in early june you can be guaranteed football size smallmouth and largemouth. The pike are skinny- nothing special. The crappie and bluegill are incredible. If you know how to fish for them, Pelican has some very large eyes- not huge numbers, but really good average size. I love Pelican. Easy lake to fish, tons of action, good quality. One of my favorite lakes, but get up there 1st week of June for a trip you will never forget.

Clear water, overall shallow lake. Great reefs, rock points, and weedy bays. Pelican Lake is easy to fish- normally if a spot seems like it should hold fish, it does. We "discovered" Pelican when we were not catching fish on Vermillion and decided to take a day trip. Ended up taking day trips to Pelican for rest of the week. Have stayed at Pelican for 8 straight years.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
