Taking my first trip to Pelican Lake in August next week and I am worried that the weeds will be so tall that fishing will be terrible.  Has anyone been on the lake recently and help calm my fears.  What is biting now?

There are plenty of areas to fish where weeds are not that tall or areas there are not much for weeds. Not sure what you will be fishing for.  As for the report I have just been to the cabin to work not done much fishing

Pelican Lake is famous for Sunfish, and is said to have a lot of bass also.   

If you want to fish a lot and maybe catch a fish,  you could always come on down the road to Vermilion for some Musky fishing 😀

 

Seriously, probably weeds aren't that big an issue.   

Are you staying at a resort?   If so they should be able to give you some tips to get you started.

Looks like northerns, largemouths, Crappies and Bluegills are the best bets.....

I am told that walleyes are few and far between on Pelican so I think we will focus on Pike, sunfish, and bass.  We have big group going, so hopefully we find enough for a couple of meals and a lot of fun.

Check the regs.  I think there are some special regs for Pelican.  

Protected slot for bass 14-20 inches

Looks like Pelican is in the north central zone for pike since it is just to south/west of hiway 53 so you get 10 with 2 over 26.  You might want to  check on that for sure.   

 

Also Pike have a protected slot 22-26.   Missed that the first reading.

      Try Darren Troseth at 3 rivers fishing adventures.  Fall is sturgeon  time.   He also specializes in catfish with a shot at a trophy.

      No doubt @papadarv!  They’re really good at it too.  The small family flocks have joined together where I’ve been seeing geese and now number 50+ typically.   We saw some geese and a few ducks today but didn’t shoot any.  We didn’t find anything worth setting up on.  Pretty amazing how slim the duck population is up here.  The biggest flock I’ve seen, including the drive up, numbered 5 birds.  It’s been mostly random singles and pairs.   The flooding up here has been amazing too.  Something like 10 inches in 25 hours.  Roads are flooded and the ditches are raging rivers.  The downstream sides of the bigger culverts look like power plant discharges.   We’re considering other options for tomorrow.

      Second flock this morning. They seem to find safe feeding grounds when the guns start popping.

      Chance of lightning....  haha.  When will it stop?!  In about an hour.  Let’s load up.

      Thanks guys! I have a reply from the recommended guide saying he is too busy in fall (apparently he is a teacher and coach etc...)   I think I will stay couple of days in Monticello and fish the Mississippi River. Any recommendations on spots and accommodations? Also do I need to hire a car?
    • Wanderer
      Just settling in for a 4 hour nap before launching the boat on LOW - provided we’re not in the middle of a T-storm.  South winds so that helps.  Rain doesn’t bother me but the chance of lightning does.   Good luck tomorrow.
