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

      One thing that's interesting being at a Seasonal resort all summer is watching how so many folks clean and fillet their fish in the cleaning shack.  And all the different fillet knives folks have. You can really pick-up some good hints.  I'm probably more like Wanderer in that I just spent hours in a boat catching these fish. I take my time to do the best job I can at filleting them out.  I do marvel at one of my buddies pan fish filleting.  Freaky-fast and clean!  😁

      How many holes today?  By the looks of the size, may be you should have stayed home? 🤭

      Future monster if the catfish don’t eat it. Lol

      I use them to bone out and trim venny also.  Perfect knife for it. The electric I have found works nice on ribs. I think the cutco is probably about 35 years old also. Not 30. Had it sharpened a few years back by the rep here. Cool knife she said. 😁

      Second, but would be willing to change if I owed a skins zit. Most of my fish are cleaned with a 6" rubber handled rap. Use a 4" for walleye cheeks, and also have a larger one for big northerns.    Mmmm, those gills were good tonight. I did get a Cutco, for a gift a while back, decent knife. Just comfortable with the newer Raps, prefer rubber over the wood for handles.  I know I must have quite a few fillet knives, but none as old as that cutco eyeguy has.... That adjustment comes in handy for large gators on the Cutco.

      I fillet around the rib bones right away. And I have my own unique way of doing pike. Don't ask.😊

      I have a Cutco and a Rapala electric that I use 99% of the time.   If I use the electric, I do it the first way, but I leave it attached to the tail to take off the fillet.   When I use the Cutco I usually do it the second way.  I also have 2 regular rapalas.  One old wood handled 5” and a rubber handled 7” that I got my son to learn to fillet with.  The 5” gets used a ton in the house for all kinds of things. Used it last weekend to slice a veni roast up for making jerky.  It’s a sweet little rig that can get in all the tight spots.

      Bottom one is 35 years old. Cutco I got about 30 years ago. Still a great knife. Can’t throw the old ones away lol
