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!!!

Thanks for the info. That's perfect size for my kids to have fun with.

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!!

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.
