Hey, anyone read Outdoor News in cuffs and collars this week? There was an overlimit of walleyes coming from Round.

I checked the DNR website. WOW what a gill net catch rate!! Highest ever!!??

Can anyone tell me anything about this lake?

Its your typical prairie pothole lake. not much for structure at all. the lake is stocked regularly and is a good walleye lake. Throw on a shap rap and start trollin!

Trolling for sure and casting raps and twisters into the north shore isn't the dumbest thing to do either.

Round Lake has been hot and fish very hard for the past two years. I have fished for the last 3 years and Last winter, when I went out there, there was over two hundred people. I averaged a walleye about every 2-3 minuets but all of them but one was between 7"-12". The one I kept was 17". I also had a couple of friends who ice fished it two winters ago and three of them took their limit home everyday for two weeks all the fish being over 17". Plus there was at least 100 other icehouses out there. I keep thinking this lake is about fished out, but it keeps kicking more eyes out.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
