The best suggestion that I have is to fish it in the spring before the circus of jet skis and power boats come out in june and july. Also, get there early, I have spent a couple times waiting an hour or so to get the boat in the water. As far as "spots" go.....fish the traditional spring time spots where the water is a bit warmer and shallower depth levels.

Oh ya nothing worse than waiting for some guy who doesnt know anyting aobout his nice i/o sitting in the way of the landing trying to start his boat for an hour. Most normal people start there boats with a pair of earmuffs b4 going to the lake. It may not have been so bad had his wife not parked her car on the other side of the dock to try and jump start the boat. He really did not like it when I squeezed my self in next to him after 1 hour of waiting. Pelican is a good fishing lake if you a.) FIsh after dark, b.) fish prior to memorial day or after labor day.

I may be on Pelican at midnight. IF you find us I will point you in the wright direction. We will have a Blue Boat and a Red Boat, blue Van and Red Pickup. We are all ugly and will be wearing rain suits. Not to hard to hard to spot us.

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
