Pelican Lake covers 8367 acres and has a shoreline length of 23 miles. Pelican is known for its water clarity of 16 to 20 feet.
As a fishery, Pelican is one of Minnesota’s best. It is home to crappies, bluegills, sunfish, largemouth bass, northern pike, rock bass, perch and the Minnesota state fish, the walleye. With ever varying structure that keeps the best boaters on their toes, the lake has almost too many fish hiding spots. Pelican’s deepest point is 102 feet. Throughout the lake are countless holes bordered by fish-holding breaks.
The water clarity and sandy bottom make beautiful beaches. These are a swimmers delight.
