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.

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
