Round Lake

3 posts in this topic

Anyone have any advice for a first time trip to Round Lake (next to Gull). I spend many winter weekends on Mille Lacs, but never been up that way during open water. Thanks

Bring hip boots for the landing. Fish with shiners and a Lindy Rig. Fish the wind. Have fun, it's a neat lake.

Just got back from fishing Round. Temps got down close to freezing last night in some areas around here. Fishing started out slow this morning. Couldn't seem to get much going on lindy rigs/minnows/leeches. Then tried right up in the weeds and on the weedlines 9-13FOW, and caught a pretty good smorgasboard......walleyes, pike, and of course bass. We did the best with a 3/8 jig/powerbait, or jig/minnow combo. Access IS shallow, but still do-able with a 19 foot Ranger.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.
