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.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.

      How has the bite been this weekend?  Not able to fish this weekend due to graduations.  Shiners still working?

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.
