Some from experience and some picked up from chatting people up....

Pelican... Some nice 'eyes being caught in 18-32' of water. I have had my best luck in the 23'-25' range deadsticking a shiner with a glow red jig. Really some nice eyes in this lake. Alot of my fish have come over the tops of grass bottoms. if you can find the magick grass to gravel or grass to mud spots in that range you should be fine. Have not heard much about panfish. Northerns seem to be active in some of the bays hitting suckers on tip ups. Such a clear lake low light has been better for us.

North Long... Talked to a guy who had gotten some decent eyes in the Merrifield bay area. Not hot or heavy but a few a night. He's a shiner guy who jigs with heads and tails on a pimple or similar lure.vAlso heard some crappies have been going inthe 25'-30' range. Saw a bucket full of nice 11"-12" fish at the local gas station the other day.

Edwards... Have a room mate that gets out thier twice or so a week. Been getting a couple eyes a night however nothing big. He uses a jigging rap and deadsticks fatheads. His depths have been in the mid 20 foot range he says.

Serpeant Lake.... My boss has his house out and has been in it every night for over a week. He has been getting a few crappies, some perch, and a few eyes. Nothing to write home about. Most fish have been caughting jigging minnows. I have noticed more activity on this lake in the past week. Whether that is safer ice or a good bite somewhere I have yet to find out.

Gull Lake... The walleye bite has been great this year. I personally have fished some spots not to far from grassy and have seen 25+ eye afternoons/evenings. My favorite technique is a flyer jig from lindy with a fathead tail. You have to do some sorting but there are definately some good eaters being caught.

For panfish most of the little lakes seem to be better. Usually quite a bit less ground to cover. Although I have not heard of a great panfish bite as of yet. Seems the fish are still kinda scattered.

Good luck out there!

Thanks ICEMAN, I love that spot you gave me, I usually keep a few from there, nothing like the taste of fresh Sunnies.

Thanks man.
