Great family vacation lake, but if I were looking for a fishing trip I would go to Kab-Nam-Crane or Rainy. Of course if you like pan fish then the lake is about as good as it gets for action. The kids love it. After mid-June there are lots of weeds in the bays and deeper waters around the islands. Water is stained.

Pelican Lake is one of the best lakes. 1st week of june is best. If you go in early june you can be guaranteed football size smallmouth and largemouth. The pike are skinny- nothing special. The crappie and bluegill are incredible. If you know how to fish for them, Pelican has some very large eyes- not huge numbers, but really good average size. I love Pelican. Easy lake to fish, tons of action, good quality. One of my favorite lakes, but get up there 1st week of June for a trip you will never forget.

Clear water, overall shallow lake. Great reefs, rock points, and weedy bays. Pelican Lake is easy to fish- normally if a spot seems like it should hold fish, it does. We "discovered" Pelican when we were not catching fish on Vermillion and decided to take a day trip. Ended up taking day trips to Pelican for rest of the week. Have stayed at Pelican for 8 straight years.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
