Round Lake (near Palisade)

Recommended Posts

fuzzyray

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?

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
