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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
