Indian Mound Resort

I am planning on staying at Indian Mound Resort on Pelican for Memorial Weekend. We used to go there every Memorial Weekend when I was a kid, but it has been over 10 years now... can anyone give me some pointers on where to look for eye's around that time of year???

If this is the Pelican lake right next to Minnewaska your better off going to Minnewaska. However the lake has picked up in the last few years. Look to the west side drop off where the island is or used to be. Otherwise in the middle bay on the east side of the lake cast some jigs tipped with small minnows along the weed edge from the main point and work your way into the bay. The Northern pike are great fishing action all day long if the walleyes are not cooperating. Just troll Daredevels along the weed edge especially the north side of the lake. It won't take long and you will be into 'em.

Nope...talking about the big Pelican lake in Grant County near Ashby. It was a hot lake for early ice again this year, and the crappies run large! Still biting, but difficult to get to...ice conditions are not ideal...some thin and open areas in the narrows...

As to memorial day 'eyes: Indian Mounds resort is on Big Island Road...out on the large penninsula on the east side. That area offers great spring walleye fishing. Jig and minnow, or a bottom rig and shiner. Work the inside turns and deeper points. (max depth is only 21ft!)

Call Northeast Outfitters...763-9598 when it get's closer to your trip....we should have some open water updates by then!

good luck and good fishing!

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?
