I've fished Pelican Lake (Orr, MN) for years . . . always catch fish, but never seem to find much in the way of size (like 30-inch+ pike, 25-inch+ walleyes, etc.). The trips are always fun, but my fishin' buddy has been seduced by the LOTW-types promising monster pike, big smallies, etc. and wants to move up to 'the big time'. Lots of these places look great, but I use a CPAP pump to sleep and need 24-hr electricity . . . most of these places don't seem to have that.
Are there spots in northern MN where bigger fish are more plentiful? Maybe I need to re-think my approach to Pelican? Any Canadian spots with 24-hr electricity? BTW, I don't need contacts from resorts/lodges, etc. . . . I've got hundreds already! . . . just some info from folks who have actually fished up there.
