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 for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
