It's about a 45 minute drive from Grand Rapids to Squaw Lake. Take 2 NW to Deer River and then 46 N to Squaw Lake from there.
Good Luck !!
The perch bite should be picking up on Round soon, plus, if you find any crappies they're usually pretty good sized too.

shadrap,
I can give you a spot to try on round where we have caught crappies in the past if you can tell me where your friend caught the perch. I am coming up there next week on our annual trip and we always fish round at least once for the perch in the day and the crappies in the evening. If you those crappies are in that spot there is no need to go to red to fish them. They're nice fish.

I was on Round this past Fri-Sun. Conditions on the lake were inconsistent. Lots of slushy spots from the melting that took place earlier are now covered by the new snow that has fallen. I got stuck 4 times when I sunk into a few of those soft spots. 2wd wouldn't have a chance out there. Take your ATV.
The weather screwed up the bite on Fri and Sat. But I scored big on Sun afternoon. Found a very good school out on the main lake. 2 of us kept 27 perch in 2 hrs between 10 and 12 inches. We threw back many many more. The biggest groups I saw were fishing the sand on the east side. It looked like they were fishing the first break. It gave it a shot and had nothing but dinks so I headed out beyond the first break onto the bars and hit fish between 9 and 12 ft.
Hogfisher--I have GPS coordinates for you if you will trade for crappie suggestions. If you don't have GPS I can give you mileage and compass heading from either ramp. The crappies have continued to give me the slip out there. I can catch those slabs spring, summer, and fall on Round but have never hooked up in the winter on them. You're right....Red crappies don't have anything on Round's, except Round Lake crappies are a lot tougher to find in the winter ( for me at least). I'm giving it one last shot March 19-21

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒
    • osok
      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
