davis/round lake

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone knows anything about these two lakes. I have heard that there is some decent crappie and northern fishing to be had. Is there any size or is it more numbers?

I know a little (very little) about Davis and Round from many years ago. I went to the church camp that's located between the two lakes when I was a kid. So the last time I was there, it was probably 15+ years ago.

I was always able to get a little fishing in while I was there. I would get up early while everyone else was still sleeping and fish from shore. Northerns were extremely abundant in Round, very easy to catch from shore. All the ones I caught or saw were always small. I saw a few big crappies caught from the docks, and I caught some big rock bass in there. Also caught some big perch. The most memorable experience I had out there was catching a very big dog fish. At the time I didn't have a clue what it was. But it was probably a 7 to 8 pounder. Heck of a fun fight!

I never fished Davis. But I would see some boats out there from time to time fishing northerns, I heard they did pretty well. Walking along the shoreline there I saw a few monster bullheads.

I'm sure most of this isn't too relevant to how fishing is out there today. But you never know.

round lake has many snake northerns, they are a blast to catch, just use your bowmount and cast the shorelines.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
