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.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
