Last Wednesday around 12:45pm, a massive 28 inch walleye was caught (then later released) on Pelican Lake by Owen Lockhart. He tells that he never got the exact weight but he estimates the fish weighed between 12-15 pounds. Lockhart tries to get out fishing as much as possible, almost everyday this year. On the day of the catch he was on the lake at 8:00am. Witnesses to the catch were two of his buddies: Tanner Riddle and Justin Kelbert. He believes that Pelican Lake is bouncing back and becoming a great fishery once again, adding that it will stay that way if people follow the limits and slot size, and release the big breeding fish.
