Minnesota Fishing Resort
Enjoy our Minnesota fishing resort on Pelican Lake's 11,000 acres of water with 54 miles of shoreline and over 50 islands. The lake is well known for it's many different fish species including perch, crappies, bluegills, largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleyes, northern pike, and bullheads.
There is nothing like a good old fashioned Minnesota fishing vacation for fun and relaxation. Entire families benefit from spending quality time together and our northern Minnesota resort is the perfect vacation destination for a relaxing family and fishing vacation. With proper planning teaching a young child how to fish can be a very rewarding experience. There are plenty of pan fish in Pelican Lake to make this a worthy adventure when you have small children. Make sure to have an experienced fisher person for each two children under 8 years of age. Plan a short fishing trip for the first time out. Young children tend to get restless after a few hours. If you're interested in a guided trip please give us a call and we can set the fishing trip up in advance.
Guide Service – We have an independent guide available for full- or half-days. Call in advance for rates or reservations.

As for Pelican Lake...well..there isn't a statue of a bluegill in Orr for nothing. You'll catch quality (nine inch fish are common) and quality bluegill, and you'll find crappies and plenty of aggressive pike.
"Pelican is one of the few lakes where you can catch large and smallmouth bass," says Fishing Supervisor Kevin Peterson. "If you want to catch largemouth bass, and some big ones, I can't think of a better place."
