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

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
