You will have no problem catching northerns but the down side is the size. It's tough getting any over two pounds. But they should give you lots of action. Good luck!!!

Round is part of the chain of lakes with the new pike limits. The limit for pike is now 9 per person on Round, Squaw, Dora, Sand & Bowstring. Part of the reason there are so many hammer handles in the chain is people are harvesting the bigger fish and not taking the smaller eating fish.

The water is still very low on Round. This weekend I tried the east landing near town and with my front tires in the lake, my boat was still high & dry on the trailer. The north landing isn't much better since you have to walk the boat past the weeds to get the motor down.

Sorry, I forgot to mention this before there is a 22" to 36" protected slot on northerns and yes the limit is nine. That what happens when I have a few beers my memory goes. Keep those little critters, they taste great!!! Good luck!!

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
