Boat Landings?

Recommended Posts

Could someone tell me where the nearest boat landing to get into Pelican Lake would be? I have fished Devils Lake a few times but have never gotten into Pelican before. Any new reports?

Thanks!

If you go down hwy 19 twords minniwaken, you will come to old hwy 281 it will have water on all sides of the intersection, take a right going north and go up about 1 or 2 miles and you will see were people are putting there boats in, it is not really a access more of a old road off of the hwy, but we put in there about a week and a half ago and it worked just fine for our 18ft boat. My recomendation would be to go to Grahms boat ramp and fish in the trees, that is were we had our best luck when we were there, we caught nothing but northerns in Pelican.

Selas is the old hwy 281 marked with signs? Are they putting in on the east side of the road and what kinds of hazzards did you encounter? Can you get out to the moon bar and refuge island from there? Thanks in advance.

Cant miss old 281 it looks like a road going thru the middle of the lake, says minimum mantinace and has big road closed gates that get closed in the winter. Would be east side of road. No hazards other than being shallow untill you get out a little ways, stay to the left as you go on to the lake from the landing. right gets shallow. Not sure what moon bar or refuge island is, but you can pretty much get to any spot on pelican from there. Like stated in earlier posts, I wouldent waste my time up there, lots of pike no walleye. Head to Grahms and fish the trees! Good luck, let me know how you do!

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
