Thanks I will do that tomorrow to see if my plan is a good one or if I should just leave for Canada Friday instead of Thursday.

Minnesota is harder to get reports from in general. I've always had the same difficulty. Calling bait shops is my go-to method now.

Nobody fishes this lake or are you all tight lipped?

Had a good few days on Pelican this past week. Mostly catch and release for bass targeting Smallmouth off the rocks. Got a majority of our fish off the rock reef edges in 7-10 feet of water. It was very hot and calm with no wind. I could not believe the size or numbers of huge Largemouth Bass we were getting there as well! We had five and I don't think one was under 4lbs. We used Pumpkinseed and Black/Red Fleck tubes on weighted jig heads. We also got walleyes on plastics off the rocks in the evening so it looks like the lake is cycling to be a good year for the "eyes" as well. Did some bobber fishing off the weed edges and found some monster bluegills and of course the pike were plentiful there too.

Ice out was yesterday so you should be good to go on the 2oth. I don't have any fishing reports yet though, hopefully we will get up there in the next week or two. The early Crappie bite can be really good on the shallow rocks.

Crapzilla, There will be few fish in the hole, so come catch some Lunker sport fish with Cappy and Glegg. But if you do catch dinner, we will eat it of course.... Cool

My boat had 4 largemouths over 20", maybe 6 smallies around 19" and one smallie around 21". The rest of our group caught mostly panfish and northerns and one incidental walleye. I planned on putting some time in on panfish and walleyes but I couldn't make myself stop my bass fishing. I caught bass everywhere from orr bay to the west end.

I just got back myself on Saturday. The rain on last 8/4 brought cooler lake temps and the fish responded nicely. Biggest bass 6 lbs, small mouth 4.5lbs, pike 10-15lbs. Ate the small pike and panfish, tasted great. Most fish were caught in saunders bay and the west end.

Pelican certainly didn't disappoint. I've never fished a lake with so many big bass in it. The average size is incredible and all of the fish are shaped like footballs.

I've only seen 2. My wife caught a 14in and her uncle caught a 5lb. Me and her brother fish for bass and pike. Panfish is good. I think the eyes are fished more in the winter according to locals.
