Round lake north of town

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has tried fishing for sunnies on round lake north of aitkin? I have never tried and have never heard of anyone doing it. If so is there any size? thanks

We used to fish for sunnies on Round. You're talking about the one near Waukenabo and Esquagamah right? We used to catch quite a few, but nothing of any size. I haven't tried that lake for sunnies for years. In my opinion Squag or Waukenabo are better choices. My wife did catch a nice sunny there this summer, but it was the only one we caught. Tons of rock bass though!

Have never targeted sunnies on Round. It is great for walleyes during softwater. A lot of folks fish Squag for sunnies this time of year, and there can be a good crappie bite there too.

hey thanks for the replies guys. Yup thats the round lake im talking about. I have fished walleyes on it but never chased sunfish. i might give it a try tomorrow. i would think that with all the people chasing walleyes out there the sunnies might get over looked. thanks again

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
