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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
