Round Lake (near Palisade)

Recommended Posts

I'm heading back to my hometown (Aitkin) favorite fishing lake (after moving to St. Cloud 4 years ago), wondering if anyone has been out on Round since opener? Haven't been up to Round for a few years now. I'll be up there Fri-Sun staying at a friends placed on the lake. Looking to get a report or 2. Any of those lil eyes starting to grow up? How have they been biting? See you on the lake!

Good to see that some one is reading these posts! I was up Fri(16th) night. It was a beautiful night and I got on to some decent fish. I boated 6 walleyes around 16-17" in about 1 1/2 hrs. Nice eaters for sure. Sat morning it was dead calm. I got out at 5:15 and caught a beautful 20" eye right away, then a 16". Soon as the sun came up things came to a hault. Fished a number of spots without success. Finally landed one more (18") around 9:00. It was nice to catch a few bigger fish. Any one else been out lately? I saw a lot of boats including 9 fishing after dark. Any ideas on how the night bite has been. I haven't done much night fishing but would like to. Any tips on getting started into that? Good Fishing all!

What's the public access like for this lake (how many vehicles does it accommodate)? I fished it once this winter and caught a few small walleyes and wouldn't mind giving it a try next time I'm up in the area (hopefully might make a day trip up from the cities this weekend).

Thanks!

The public access is quite nice. Concrete DNR ramp. There is parking for about 7-10 vehicles I'd estimate. I've never had much problems parking or getting the boat in there! Good Fishing!

Anyone fishing any of the other lakes in the area?

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
