dodge guy, when was the last time you fished Round? I can give you 8 houses that have more than struggled in the last week.

Had a buddy get three off of Round Saturday evening. He had the Marcum and was jigging about an inch off the bottom. He could see the fish come in and raised his jig about six inches and could get them to hit. The other guys with him caught nothing. They can be had but it's got a lot tougher.

Not sure, can't figure this one out, if it's weather, or what. From 15 below to 35 in 2 days now back to strong winds and snow today.... your guess is as good as mine. I am home with bronchitis right now, gotta love getting sick spending so much time in a hospital! but I have a couple guys out there pretty contstant I will get the low down and let you know.

I can see both the weather and just the flat out fishing pressure having it's effect on Round. Let's face it, it's a fairly amazing fishery, especially for it's location. (southern MN)

It's been getting fished hard, and producing, for well over 2 years now. It's bound to slow down eventually.

Sick is a drag. I was fairly ill last weekend. Between work and shots of the cruddy bug I still managed to get some ice time.

you are absolutley correct. this is the 3rd year of hard pressure she took. not to mention the open water pressure too, you should see that mudhole on opener!!!!

She has been fun, but like you said the fun can end too. who knows?

The sick thing sucks for sure. I though I skated by it when the rest of the family was sick, but NOPE, whammmo, my throat glands feel like they are the same size as my waist!!!!!!!!!! yikes!

Yea thats what I figured... I was planning on heading out to Round, but people say it's slowed way down. So I really don't know if its worth 2 hrs.

My daughter is sick too. My wife's turn today and perhaps mine tomorrow if she doesn't re-direct "the storm". Seems to be a lot of illness floating around...

It's not that I don't want to make the trek but I want to be sure it won't be frustrating for everyone involved.

I was sick yesterday so hopefully thats all for me and if the walleyes arent biting I think I can find a few crappies and gills if youre interested.

Heard from a fishing friend that was on East Grahm and caught several small walleyes nothing worth keeping. It was on 01-26-2008 in the evening.

HOLY COW we were on the west side of Lake Shetek the other day and I have never seen better fishing...By the end of the day we had our limit of Crappie and Walleye for two guys. Our biggest crappie was a 15 and our walleye was a 20. I strongly suggest hitting that spot up.

Hi outdoorkid. Welcome to FM!!!

I haven't fished Shetek in a while but I've heard through the grape vine the crappie bite was on.

Were you on the north side of the lake? Seems that's where I've heard of most of the action.

We were like Northwest side in between a little bit. The walleye was better than crappie. Small Glow lures with really small minnows were workin well. We had an absolutly huge walleye come right up to the fish cam

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
