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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
