Round by Squag

7 posts in this topic

Anyone been out for 'eyes? I am going up to the cabin this weekend and am curious on ice thickness and fishing reports on Round? Did the snow hurt the ice at all? I want to pull out the big house if I can after watching the temps for this weekend.

I didn't hit Round, but I was on Moulten Sunday. 4-6" ice, but sagging lots from the snow. Slushy mess to say the least. And we got another 5" since then. Sorry it isn't any more current or about Round directly, but it is the closest I got.

Thanks for the reply. I love Molten, so remote and tannen stained. Reminds me of Canada water. Was it worth it? Craps or 'eyes? Not looking forward to the deep messy.

I doubt you could or should put out your perm.house.

With all of the snow the ice is not that good plus with all of the weight ,you start drilling holes and that area will be flooded.

Blocking would not work well either.

I'd wait another week or 2.

If you fished the far north end or west side you could be alright.

Round is so deep and it took a bit for it to freeze.

Make darn sure you block it up high,especially if it's a heavy permanant shack.

Check it out for yourself.I'd always spud a hole or 2 1st ,then use your best judgement.

Good luck!

PS....It has been cold & will remain all week.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
