The Round between Esquagamah&Waukenabo.

I really don't fish Waukenabo much, I usually hit Esquagamah. So when you are on Waukenabo, do you target Walleyes ? Or catch them while fishing for other fish? Eveytime I 've been there all I caught were Norhterns.

Thanks for any info.

I'm going for eyes.

They are easy to catch as sunfish.

Squag's eyes are much nicer.

I may also hit Esquagagamah on opener if my main plan falls through. Round is also an option, but I imagine opening weekend, Round is somewhat busy. Anyways, goodluck and more importantly good fishing.

Do you think that Rat will be crowded? I have not heard any reports there. Has it been fished pretty hard this winter?

You can have Rat.It got hit hard over the last couple winters when the word got out.

There's still some nice fish there but it's not a lake I really want to work with only 1 hole and mega weeds.

Round in not bad at predawn hours.

I'm gonna hit her by 4 bells and stay into sunrise then hit Sqaug as she has a great day bite.Then back to Roung at 6-10 .Back to Round in the A.M.

fished on Wauk on opener. Had a lot of fun taking my daughter out for Panfish and hammerhandles. Need to spend more time there to find the eyes I think. I may try round this weekend, but it seems like a tight area for parking if its crowded.

good luck

Round was jam packed on openers after the sun came up other wise there was only 1 other boat.

That will subside this weekend.

I had a tough time finding biting eyes on squag too.We did good on Round between 5-8 am and 8-10 pm.

Round is so clear the day bite is tough unless a storm is moving in then all bets are off.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
