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.

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!
    • monstermoose78
      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.

      I got the Polluted From my own observation.  The North Branch of the Sunrise River, At least the part that Runs though The town of  North Branch, Isn't the healthiest.  I Walked by the river in a small park. The River was full of peoples Trash.  Like Washer Machines  and trash bags. People Trash Either ran into the river, or People just dump their trash their.

      All right People, Thanks for the info, next time I have a question about the St. Croix, I'll Post it on the thread. Peltier Sounds good, But your right the rivers are my best bet. Thanks for the link I'll make sure to use it.

      I don’t know who told you the sunrise river is polluted. Aside from a little bit of run off and algae blooms, the river is quite clean. The lower river is a popular summer float tubing spot. Come duck season, it will seem like the whole east metro is packed into Carlos Avery.
