Pelican Lake is approximately 11,000 acres with over 50 islands and more than 54 miles of shoreline. The fishing is second to none. It is home to giant bluegill, an abundance of crappie, some of the best smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing in the state, not to mention the very nice walleye, perch and northern pike. For those interested in fishing, keep in mind that Pelican lake has a slot limit in place for bass and pike. Pike caught between 24-36 inches must be immediately returned to the water as well as Bass between 14-20 inches. This slot limit has helped to preserve Pelican Lake as a great fishing destination, particularly to those interested in catching a trophy bass or a nice pike! Also somewhat unique to Pelican Lake are the birds that the lake is named for. The giant birds can be seen all around the lake, along with other birds such as loons, bald eagles, herons and more. Pelican Lake’s beauty and tranquility are unforgettable. This is the perfect place for your next Minnesota vacation!
