Like to thank everybody who came to the tournament. We had 168 people entered. To bad the fishing was slow. Only one perch was caught. But hopefully we will see you next year and the fishing will be better.

That's what happens when Minnesota does not have a minimum length size or a reduced daily limit. The lake goes a a hot bite for a few years,now fished out.

One day of fishing is far from enough proof of that. Im sure that if the RLSC thought the lake was fished out that they would have held the tourney somewhere else this year and definitely last year when it was fished the hardest.

I don't fish Round Lake. I just go by what I hear and guys I know that would go out about every night the last 2 winters and haul em home. Just my thought. I am a firm believer in a minimum lenght limit,and a smaller bag limit.

Snow conditions and blocked accesses made travel on the lake very difficult that might have been the biggest factor in the lack of success on the lake. If lack of success were the determining factor on a lake then the vast majority of the waters in SW MN would go almost untouched.

IMO personal limits and ethics would do more for fishing than any state set minimum would ever accomplish.

In my thought on the lake is fished out, i would have to say no, has it been fished hard, yes. I would like to know how many people went out there 5 to 10 years ago and cought fish in numbers threw the ice, i bet not many of you can say you cought a lot. Some days you would do good and otheres you would not even see the boober move. Round Lake this summer was one of my best when i was down that way, i sat in one spot and cought ruffly 30 walleye 4 crappies and about a 10 pound cat. However i went out there the next day and i worked the whole lake and only cought 2 walleyes and a bullhead, then the last day i was down home we cought massive amounts of walleys again.

When i was down there over chrismas and fished for a day i only managed 3 walleyes all 12 inches, i dont eat fish so i never keep them anyways but what i noticed was a very large amount of fish left in there, they where everywhere i put the camara down, Two there was thousands of little bait fish that was the size of my minnows, Third the perch are on the rebound and that is also bait fish for walleyes,

so in opinion i would say round lake is just fine, i would think that with all that bait fish in there the bite might be tough but will recover for atleast couple of weeks in the spring and mybe even for a day or two this winter

sorry for the long message

yea fishing is ok at best, oxagen levels are on the rebound and the fish should start acting a little more aggresivley, Talking with the girlfriends dad the bite south of bemidji is hotter then anywhere that i have heard.

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
