What's been going on on Pelican? I will be up next week and need a report. All I have heard so far is that the bluegills have not spawned yet. What's up with that? It's the bleedin' fourth of July. Come on Sled, what's the word?

Wow! I'll let you know if we do anything unusual or we hit something that we shouldn't have.

I was on Pelican last week and caught my usual Northerns and Bass. I went out early on Saturday to target Walleye and caught my first (and only) Pelican lake Walleye in 15 fow on a Lindy rig tipped with a leech.

They do exist.

we were out on sunday and probably caught 50 bass, vast majority being largemouth. We spent half of the day finding new spots. and the wind made the lake almost unfishable for the afternoon. Nothing over 4 lbs. Might be the last time I fish it for the year as the Rainy Lake walleyes are calling me.

was at Pelican from June 27-July 3. Weather was interesting to say the least at the beginning of the week. Water temp dropped 12 degrees from Sat to Wednesday, from the cold and the wind. Caught a ton of bluegills(300-400), they were shallow before the cold and then dropped a bit deeper. Caught numerous 3-4 lb bass while fishing for gills biggest being a 19.5 inch smallie. Typical 100 or so northerns, with most under slot, saw one try and eat one of our bluegills that was at the top end of the slot or over. Crappies were caught at dusk on little spinners around islands. Finally on Friday after the winds went down we went for walleyes and got three, trolling baby bluegill shad raps. I have been to pelican about 8 or 9 times and always caught walleyes. From the sounds of it I am in the minority. We catch them trolling cranks and harnesses. I cant wait until next year.

I catch walleyes there fishing for bass every so often. I always catch them in 4 feet or less of water

Rather that running my face about how we did, tell me how to get photos on this site and I will post the pictures when they come back. (old foggie film camera). We did well from last sunday (5th) until Friday morning the 10th. We caught good numbers and some real pigs. Pan fishing was spotty but with three women and two kids, it was work especially with the wind.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
