My dad and I used to fish Mound quite a bit during summer and a little in winter. It's a pretty cool little lake. Very scenic in some spots. Water clarity is pretty good also.

The fishing is alright. A decent amount of largemouth to keep you interested. The bluegills are mostly stunted, but occasionally you can get into some nice sized ones. A lot of hammerhandle pike in there, too. Some crappies out there, but we never really got into them. It's supposed to be a pretty decent walleye lake, but I've never really tried for them either. Overall, it's just a fun little lake to go and catch something.

If you want more info, stop in at Nancy's Bait and Tackle between Upsala and Grey Eagle and talk to Rex. He's a really nice guy and will give you plenty of info about Mound and all the other lakes in that area. Hope this helps....

This is a very scenic lake. Bite can be fickle though. Good weed bed just before the narrows. Good walleye action first part of the year. Panfish also good off the north side weed bed. Good luck and hang on. Bill

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
