Round Lake

8 posts in this topic

I am thinking about giving round lake a try next weekend.I have a few questions i am hoping you guys can help me with.I have never fished or even seen round lake.Which side of the lake has the best access?Is there an aeration system running on the lake and if so where on the lake is it?Last question...hows the water clarity this year for cameras? Looks like friday will be the day we are heading over there. Thanks for the help.

Aerator is running and is on the west side of the lake. East side has best access, there is on the south side depends which part of the lake you are going to fish. not sure about the water clarity for a camera, haven't fished round lake in a while. good luck. Anything going on over on the fairmont lakes? i have never fished over there but would like to give it a try.

Dan after the traffic of the tournament and the wind today, the east access is ok at best. 4 wheel drive is a good idea, it is deep but there are trench tracks to follow.

Night bite has been the best the last two days. 17 fish caught in the tournament by 178 registrants. That night, our group had a great night from sunset to 9pm. Tonight they moved a little, but we had some friends show up and they set down in the right direction and caught quite a few.

Last week to get a fresh walley supper, and thank goodnes we found some keepers!!! Seems to be best if you tail hook a flutter bug and red has been the best color.

Good luck!

Camera clarity is below average. My aqua view had a range of only 2'this last weekend. At best 3-4' is about the best you can hope for on round lake.

My Marcum VS380 had a range of probably 8-10' where we were on Saturday.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
