Round Lake predictions

3 posts in this topic

I would like to hear if anybody predicts that Round Lake will come around this season and produce some eyes. It was a bust for me last season.

I think Round has been hit so hard in recent years that it's going to take a few years to recover. I have very low expectations this year. The low water is a good thing, IMO. It's makes it very hard to get anything over a 16' boat into Round thus keeping pressure down.

I agree that Round will improve but it will take time. We have the Winnie resort owners to thank. When the slot went on the big pond, the "tourists" complained about the size restrictions. They were directed to Round since there was no slot there yet. I saw the sudden increase in non-resident boats on our little lake. Once the slot was imposed on Round, this traffic disappeared. Don't misunderstand; I'm defiantly not "anti-tourism". That is what supports all the local businesses. Slot limits work! I would rather catch fish all day and have to "work" for a few keepers for the skillet than work all day to catch anything at all. Keep what you need...the rest are for seed! Those big hen walleyes aren't good table fair and make lots of little walleyes. Let 'em go.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
