Pelican Lake is hailed as one of Minnesota’s great fishing lakes with an abundant supply of bluegills, large and smallmouth bass, walleyes, crappies, northern pike, and perch. Children enjoy casting a line for panfish and are rarely disappointed!
With nearly 11,000 acres, 54 miles of shoreline and over 50 islands to explore, Pelican Lake is a dream come true for those who have yet to experience its treasures! Happy vacationers return year after year, heading out for a day of serious fishing. Fishing is great year-round, too. Spring, summer, winter, and fall each bring their own character to the area and each offers unique challenges for fishermen. You can lazily troll along the shore searching for pike in the summer and then come back in January to try your hand at ice fishing.
