A couple of us bass guys are looking for a new lake to fish next summer. We are planning on spending a week on a lake and was wondering if Pelican was a good destination for our group.  A lot of the lake looks shallow on the map we have. Any comments on this lake woukld be appreciated.

A new lake...... does that mean you’ve fished Vermilion?
 

i can’t comment on Pelican. But, I’ve spent many seasons fishing Vermilion for bass. I’d consider( any many others more in the know) Vermilion as a premier bass lake.

Pelican is said to be a good bass and gill lake. No personal experience.   Mille Lacs also has great rep for smallies.

We have fished Vermilion several times. Good bass lake for sure. Have fished Mille Lacs for bass and that was an amazing day of bass fishing. The one thing we have found about Vermilion is if you don't get there early in the year they move deep and you have to fish them like walleyes.

Pelican Has lots of bucket mouth and small mouth in it. If your interested in a resort in the lake highly recommend Joe over at Deer Lodge

      That's the point Rick. jigginjim talked about leaving a portable out on the lake while he was gone (more than 200ft away). Therefore he needed to have his name on it. I think that we agree on this.

      Hardest part is getting onto most lakes not driving around. if you can make it 75 yards onto a lake your golden. Saturday morning will be cold you'll be good. Saturday coming off you might have fun. Sunday might be soupy.

      How are the lakes west of ottertail. Can you get around with a ranger on tires or should I bring sleds?

      Something that made me cuckle today and figured Id share. I was out today and went and looked at a smaller lake relatives speared or use to spear. There was about 38 spearing setups in a 200-300 yard circle. And get this, 90% of those holes were setup with the same type of portable house. This lake is about 400 acres. It use to have a great population of nice panfish and a healthy pike population. Now that these relatives have speared this lake the last 5 years the panfish are all tiny and theres only small pike left. And now those relitives complain that "there is no nice spearable pike left" and the panfishing is poor. Well all be darn who would think after years of spearing the same lake and taking multiple large pike (over 28") each time out the fishing would be horrible. Go figure! I'm all for spearing and do it my self and think its a great pass time. What i DONT enjoy is when people take and take from a fishery and never look back to see the path of destruction there creating. This really is the most disappointing thing about spearing for me :(.

      That is my Grand Marais report, word for word from last June. Not really sure why that guy copied and pasted it.
