Hey all, I woke up today, it feels like football weather and this means that it's time to go to Pelican and soon! I'm throwing around maybe going today... I haven't been there since last November and I usually don't fish it at this time of year... What would you all use? shiners? leeches? or crawlers? Also, what depths should I focus on and what kinds of structure? Any answers would be greatly appreciated! Good luck to all!

Bison --

Good to hear from you.

Shiners have been the ticket. Leeches also have been producing.

Some of the fish have been full of shiners. They have been tough to find at bait stores but the fish seem to find them in the lake.

A couple of weeks ago we caught them in 25-32 feet. Last week we found them in 20 feet along the weed line. I have not been out this week yet.

We have been working the mansion area hard and the mid-lake humps as well.

Go get them!

Hitman you should have been in the boat with us. Lots of 10inchers again tonight. Tried a 90 degree break and nothing was there tried deep tried shallow nothing there. Went to a midlake hump just off of that spot and got the 10 inchers. 20-21 feet of water. Nothing worth keeping so went back to the first spot when the sun came out and nothing was there. Tied on raps and trolled around and got norts bass and sunny. No walleyes worth keeping. Probable had about 20 in the boat

Was out two days ago, caught one 12" on a bottom bouncer + shiner, caught three nice ones at night cranking.

Me and a couple of buddies tag-teamed Pelican last night. We had 4 guys in 2 boats. The bite was pretty slow. We managed to get 6 fish in each boat with the biggest being 12 inches in each boat. Almost all of the fish came on minnows. Had one on leeches. It was strange, but the bites stopped at 8p.m. instead on getting better.

Had a couple of nice bites, but missed those. Caught some snakes and perch as well. Some knucklehead in a Jetski kept zipping around us. That was not nice. mad.gif

Maybe we should have gone to Big C.

Hit.

      Now that sounds like a plan.   
    • kelly-p
      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Hey Kelly can I fish of your dock opener

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
