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

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.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
