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.

      would like to see a protected slot on bluegills, 10 to 12 inches go back. only one over 12 inches.

      Stands to reason that clogging up the dock at a public access would irritate people.  Most of those docks aren't very big.  That problem didn't occur to me.

      PSU,   Fished the evenings last Th, Fr and Saturday.  The smaller side bays in Frazier with slip bobbers and leeches in about 8 ft of water at dusk. Thursday night my son and I caught 7 eaters.   Friday night the good news was that three of us boated about 30 walleyes.  Bad news was that only 6 were eaters.   All very small but they were really feeding in the warm shallower waters. Saturday night was very slow.  Just a few small ones.  I haven't been out the last three days. I've seen a few mayflys in Frazier Bay but no major hatching yet.

      I can't help you with access, but I have a friend that regularly fishes stump and sagatagan--apparently the lakes are infested with norts and that's what he targets.  Lots of 2-5 pounders. (I suspect if you're targeting bass you'll end up catching mostly norts.)

      It appears that most of the bass are off their beds on the deep clear lakes near Hackensack/Longville. I did see 1 smallie guarding the nest still. The winds have the minnows piled up on the NE corner and I'm sure the walleyes were there, but I struck out on my first lake (1 smallmouth). Only fished for eyes for a little over an hour in the morning darkness. As the sun was rising, I switched lakes and was excited when a decent smallmouth smoked my small wake bait as soon as it hit the water on my first cast on lake number 2. Ended up catching over a dozen around shallow rocks and deep cabbage before it was time to go to work. Didn't get much sleep last night, but it was well worth it!!
    • PSU
      Any recent fishing reports for Frazer/Smarts Bay area. Didn't fish much last weekend (maybe four hours), but it was REALLY slow for me. First time I haven't keep a keeper in quite some time. Depths, technique and bait choice would be welcomed! 
    • Grindstone29
      Fins - same for me yesterday.  Fished three hours in the evening last night.  Pretty big wind still at 7pm.  Caught 5 walleye (all dinks) and a northern.  I went out for two hours this morning, mainly graphing.  Stopped near Cranberry Island and caught one 15 inch for dinner.  Will go out again this evening for advanced scouting.  Big group coming up over the 4th of July and they are expecting to catch fish.  Maybe i'll have to reset expectations... 
    • Hoey
      I do not target smallies, but I do run across them when fishing shallow, rocky areas, typically along the shore and back in the small bays.  The ones we have caught were nice and strong, running from 19 to 21 inches.  Good Luck.
    • SkunkedAgain
      At least a decade ago, I was fishing in Head O Lakes west off Taylors Island when I got a heavy snag in 35ft. I kept pulling up what felt like a log until it appeared at the surface. It was the underwater power line that I think runs out to the island where everyone fishes muskies. I carefully unhooked my jig and let the line fall back into place in the lake.   I'll keep an eye out for your prop!

      I called the Soudan Mine today and was told that you can't leave your boat at the landing in Stuntz Bay. She said that it was "strongly frowned upon" and that she wasn't aware of any way to boat to the mine. Maybe that will be something that happens in the future.
