Is the slush on round worsening?

Recommended Posts

jd524

I have a house on Round Lake in CW county. I was told that over the last couple of days the slush has really begun to be a problem. Vehicles getting stuck, and houses being frozen in are the concerns.

I was wondering if anyone has been out there this last weekend, and would be able to share the ice / slush conditions.

At the Ojibwa Rd landing if you look straight out into the lake facing the 12 o'clock position my house is at apprroximaetly the 2 o'clock position. 2/3 of a mile out.

I'm most concerned about the conditions towards my house.

I would appreciate in advance any help from anyone that has been out ther lately. Thanks.

My roomate has a house on North Long and as of Thursday night his was frozen in pretty good. I'm guessing Round is pretty similar after these last few days.

I blocked mine up again today. The skids were in about 3 inches water even though I had it blocked up two inches. Luckly it had not froze yet and I was able to jack it up higher and then remove the banking so all the over flow can refreeze. I would imagine your house is in similar shape.

Probably not the news you wanted but slush is definately a problem this year.

I have my house on North Long, had to break the edges free this weekend. It was up 5 inches. The banked snow froze to the bottom. I am now 8 inches up. Water was 3+ inches deep around house. Every where off of the main trail is slush. Not much for moving the house this year. (Merrifield side)

Ya know, this is my first year with a perm shack and so far I am really regreting the idea of building and putting one out. It was a struggle to get the thing on the lake, 8 inches ago, and now I am wondering how am I going to get it off the lake? What does everybody else do?

We put one out 10x10 on an old boat trailer. Plow a road out, jack up the house set it down on the trialer, it takes some time and a couple of people.

jd - I was on Round for the last four days and the slush is getting worse in many areas. It is really bad on the north end near Sebago Resort. There are a couple roads plowed out toward your house so I'm guessing you'll be OK.

Good luck fishing

Thanks everyone for the info. I went out a couple of days ago to check on the conditions and maybe catch some eyes. Instead of getting lines wet I spent 3 hours helping a buddy get his vehicle out of the slush.

It appeared that there was a gigantic slush field starting right out from the Ojibiwa Rd. access, but did find that once you get of the slush area it's much easier to get around. It appears that my house is thankfully outside of the bad slush area....for now.

FYI...I was able to get around on the wheeler with rear tire chains even through the slush. It wasn't fun, but possible.

I believe most people are fishing it for eyes, but I know some are looking for crappies. I have been fishing the south side, and usually catch 2 or 3 eyes an evening generally from 14 - 18 inches. I have noticed and talked to others that believe the walleye action has slowed down lately.

Vehicle traffic is tough going off of the south landing as I'm sure it is on most lakes in the area. I was out there yesterday and there is a really nice road plowed from the landing that goes straight east to the far S.E corner of the lake. There are also several trails that have been firmed up due to heavy use, so yes you can get around by vehicle. Unfortunately you are pretty much limited to where everyone else is going. It is really tough going once you get off of a road / trail. If you avoid the slush then you still have to deal with the deep snow.

I quit driving my truck because the work it took getting around out weighed the luxury of having the vehicle. My fish house is 100 yds. from the nicely plowed road, but I'm still not driving my truck. That last 100 yds. is hard enough with the 4-wheeler that has rear tire chains.

As far as fishing report, I can only speak for myself. I'm usually out there from 3 pm to 6 pm and I usually average 2-3 walleyes. The average size for me has been 15 inches, 6 inches the smallest, 18 inches the biggest. My house is in 18-20 feet of water.

Good luck.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air. 
    • toddrun
      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy! 
    • delcecchi
      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
