For me, the fishing has been quite good this spring. I am guessing that the weeds have fallen prey to the rusty crawdad, as I see quite a few traps out and trappers don’t normally waste their time on lakes with low rusty populations. If thats the case, the weeds will be back in a few years and the fish will be bigger with this abundant food source. I have worked through this cycle on several lakes, and it takes 3-5 years. Big Arb is a perfect example.

I did fairly well ice fishing for walleyes this past winter. Didnt fish much of the latter part due to snow cover and travel. There seemed to be an abundance of bait so this may translate to poor fishing as well as this is common on my home waters on a cycle.

I haven't been on pelican in years due to direct reports of slow fishing and almost non-existence of. I was told treatment for milfoil killed most of the weeds. Any truth to that? Toothycritter may have it right about sustainability reaching its point of no return or years to return to what it was.

I have been fishing Pelican for 27 yrs now last year was by far the worst for catching this year has been better. I have been catching good amounts of eyes pike and perch keeping enough for a meal on Saturday night. My opinion the fish are simply not in the lake I believe all lakes have a point where they can’t maintain the overharvest Pelican has reached that point. I use my camera year round and there are so many spots that had lots of fish and now very very few. I also think the winters lasting till May have made for poor spawning many other lakes in the north woods are experiencing the same problem.So let them go and let them grow don’t be a freezer filler!

Something happened its been two years. Even perch on rock bars in July were not where we would at least find small ones each summer. Ice fishing in March looked like 5 to 10 guys on west end. No one in Outlet. By mid day fewer and by end of day in March I saw everyone give up. Nothing on gravel bars, reeds, and maybe a fish on cribs in March t h is used to he a hot time. One gill in shallows a few sunfish. No schools of gills in old spawning areas very few beds none most areas. Sink perch only on rock bars last winter. 

I see floats for crab traps out but I don't see many of those either now.

Only one day got decent perch in reeds last fall. No fish cone into mud bay anymore not perch first ice or late fall.

I think zebra mussels might be a culprit.During winter weeds collapse to lake floor from the weight.Now panfish have nowhere to hide.Not good.

No One will talk about what happened. I may not be the best FISHERMEN. But this lake lost it weeds.

Starting last year.,
