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.

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...

      Was just out on ice and a big difference from yesterday.  Most water has found a hole or two or ten to drain back down.  Minimal water on the lake once get away from the accesses at least on the north end of the lake.  Houses should be fine unless in a low spot with no holes anywhere near.

      Did not like how they ended the reg and OT, they got a shot to go in Reg but in neither situation did it look like we had a plan other than "somebody make a play"... But overall I really like this group.
