Coming to the area

Recommended Posts

ibfishen1962

Am looking at coming up for a 5 day trip in September. I have always fished Lida (Oak Lodge or Viking Hills Resorts), but would like some info on other area lakes and resorts in and around Pelican Rapids area. I prefer walleye and crappie, but just want to enjoy time on the water. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I've fished Lizzie quite a few times this summer. The walleyes, although in moderate numbers, have been averaging 18-almost 20 inches. Some nice smallmouth, including my personal best, 20 incher. Lots of norhterns, one in every dozen can run over five pounds.

Last year I had decent luck on Big Cormorant in September. Fish were a little deeper and had to use bottom bouncers and spinners. Better numbers of fish but had to pick through them for eaters.

Good luck.

Thanks for the reply and are there any resorts nearby? When does smallmouth season close??

Lizzie is the next lake north of Lida and Big C is only about 15 miles from there. I don't know if either lake have resorts that aren't seasonal. There is a campground on the southwest end of Pelican Lake that would be a little more centrally located.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
