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.

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?

      I dont have any experience with this, but as i was reading response about dog needing the surgery on its other knee after. I wont if it is like a athlete, where they come back from an ACL and tear the other because favoring it so much? Just thinking out loud basically

      These stats have a lot to do with it!  GF=138 GA=92 One of the highest and lowest in the NHL as of today that is huge.
