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.

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
