Pelican Lake report II

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

Well we made it out to the fish house last night and it was pretty easy since I took the sled. The snow is deep and will be a pain for anyone that uses a truck or wheeler.

The road is filled in and not good condition.

The fishing was S-L-O-W.

Caught a slimer at 4 p.m. and then had some "vexilar action" but no bites. It was still fun to get out there. There was one other guy out there with his sled otherwise nobody.

Hopefully the weather levels off so things will get better.

There was no flooding where I am located, thank goodness.

So you think 4 wheelers would be a waste to haul up from the cities? I though about it, but doesn't sound too good.

Hitman....where have you been?? I finally got the house out a few weeks ago. The fishing however is horrible. I've caught only one perch, if that tells you anything. I guess I'll just have to go out there and catch a buzz, because that house isn't moving until the slush freezes up so that I can get it off. Stop by and say hi if you're out on the sled.

Eye --

I have wanted to come out and visit but I have been out-of-town or doing "stuff" almost every weekend with Christmas, then a trip to AZ and then storms have not helped either.

I have been a little "parched" so I can even drink one of your beers ...

Well, I think wheelers will be pretty tough but it depends on if the road opens and then you can try and avoid the big drifts, but I will not lie to you -- it will be tough.

Hit Is my little spearhouse still out there? I can't figure out why the lake is so murky. The Ice fishin has basically sucked on pelican for a few years in my opinion. Of course the way i and most people fish is i the big houses that don't move. Hopefully it will be better one day. Krebsy PS Any body put a STRAIGHT ROAD in yet or should weget together and pay someone to get a road goin?

I think Barry is getting a guy to put a straight road out there - -man the guy that did the first one must have had WAY too many beers.

The fishing continues to be VERY slow on Pelican. Between Three houses we iced zero eyes.

There is no road going from the west access and you will get stuck if you try to drive a truck.

Hopefully it will get better this week as the weather gets more regular.

....."When the weather gets more regular"

What is your ideal ice fishing weather pattern?

oh -- that is easy - -where it does not change every day or two and we don;t have front after front.

When I am fishing eyes I find that having similar weather for three days or so helps the activity of the fish.

Hit Pelican yesterday and actually iced 2 decent eyes. We were the only ones out there and they hit in big shiners red hook 22 fow at abound 6:30.

May have gotten more but my "feed it till they (word choice)" backfired cause the big on tangled up all our lines so we lost about 20 minutes trying to get them all fixed up.

By the time we were down again it was less than a minute and we had our second.

Not a lot of action but entertaining.

The road is NOT usable.

Sled only.

It sucks.

      Tale of two days this last weekend. On Saturday, couldn't pull a fish out of the lake. On Sunday, had a four fish walleye limit by 11am, with a bonus perch as well.   Graphed fish on Saturday, just couldn't get 'em to move. On Sunday, went back and no fish to be found. Decided to get out of my comfort zone, so i started working spots that i hadn't been to in two years or more. 2nd spot i tried had 'em stacked. Not huge, but consistent 12-15". Good size to keep.   My take-away was get out and try some spots you haven't been to in a while.

      Rick where is Elephant lake ? I have been going to Sand Point and Crane since 1983. We fish mainly in Sand Point ...Staeges, Grassy and Browns. We are tenting at Jensen site.

      The sweltering heat, high humidity values, and intermittent thunderstorms have certainly provided some challenges for anglers but even as we enter the dogdays of summer the fish are still on the chow! As we all know there is never any shortage of action when one sets out to target Bass. Smallmouth Bass can be found along the deep weed lines, rocks, and sunken humps. Try using a Drop-Shot Rig tipped with a Leech. Largemouth on the other hand can be found working the weeds inside and outside the lines using Tubes, Spinner Baits, and Carolina Rigs. In the early morning, try working docks, shoreline structure and swimming platforms next to sharp drop-offs. Of course, usually by this time of year we have shifted our focus to chasing Large Slab Crappies. The weed beds are holding large numbers of both Crappies and Sunfish. Pay especially close attention to the cabbage along deeper drop-offs. Slip-Bobbers using live bait or plastics, Small Swim Baits, Spinners, Beetle Spins are all working well, these buggers have been hungry!! The Walleye bite is also one that has yet to relinquish to the torrid, humid conditions. A lot of techniques have still been producing good numbers of fish. Anything from pulling Spinners in the weeds, Lindy Rigs, Slip-Bobbers, jigs tipped with Leeches, Crawlers or Chubs… Cranks, Shiver Minnows and the list goes on!! It really is Dealer’s Choice it seems, trolling Cranks on the mid-lake flats has been best toward the evening hours until after dark, Spinners have been enticing them during the mid-day, as well as jigging raps for the walleye found out over the deep structure. -Cheers!

      I live just off the Rum near walbo. Water high deer flies horrible. Yes good smallie and walleye when water down to normal. To high right now in my opinion.

      I wonder if there is any connection to the fact that when the dnr guys pull their seine on my beach they get 150 or so nice perch? Run up to 4 or 5 inches.   They seine at a number of places around the lake 4 times every July and have been for many years.   This is way above what I can remember as typical.  And that is without the young of the year which are still too little to show up much.

      I fished last Tuesday and Wednesday. Caught 5 walleyes in Lower WF on lindy and leach. 4 of the fish were caught within an hour on Tuesday early evening. Mornings were slow both days. Heading up again on Monday for a few days. Hopefully weather will stay stable. 
    • james_walleye
      Ya I looked and couldn't find any results either.
