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.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
