Pelican Rapids

August 24, 2015

I was blessed with the opportunity to spend the weekend at a friend’s cabin in the Pelican Rapids area the weekend of August 21 – 23 and caught a number of walleyes, pike, panfish, and smallmouth bass.  The lures that produced the most were a Mack’s Smile Blade (R) Slow Death Rig tipped with a crawler during the day and long-line tolling minnow patterned Rapala’s at sunset in less than 5′ of water.

The biggest walleye, 24″, was caught on a wind swept point trolling a Rapala at sunset.  The largest smallmouth, 16″, was also caught on the same Rapala, again at sunset, but along a mid-lake hump that was covered with reeds.  The largest pike, 32″, was caught on a perch patterned, Big-O, crankbait.  Lots of 14″ – 19″ inch walleyes were caught and all were released.  Fun times!
