The Minnesota DNR has opened up Pelican Lake in Wright County to just about anything as far, as taking fish is concerned through March 9th. The reason: the lake is set up for a winterkill , so many fish will die anyway. Plus, the lake is slated to be drained to encourage duck habitat, so its days as a fishing destination are numbered. Licensed resident anglers can take for personal use all species of fish, in any quanity and in any manner; except with the use of seines, hoopnets, fyke nets or explosives. Make sure you respect private property as far as trespassing and keep the lake clean.
