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.

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
