Anyone know the conditions recently? Looking to target bass this next weekend. Sounds like there are some of the cookie cutter "Pike Lake" eaters available deep on minnows and the crappie are running small for the chain this year.

Hey all,

I will manage to get away for one more trip before summer's over. Plan on fishing the Pike Lake chain, will target Muskie, Walleye...or whatever. Will be fishing August 6-8. Have a nice Lund, but alas my fishing buddy bailed. Fished the lake once years ago but don't know it well. I don't suppose there is a boatless angler who knows something about this water who would consider trading some experience for a spot on my boat? If you're in the area, and want to get out for a day or 2 let me know!

OK I'm not a weird-o. I'm 53, a teacher and a Football coach, father of three...just love fishing. Let me know if you're interested!

Hey all- Going to be fishing the pike lake chain for two weeks. Staying in a hotel in park falls, so won't be able to have a fish fry. Does anyone know of anywhere near by that you can bring in your catch and get it smoked?? I would really appreciate any info. Thanks so much!!!!

From my experience, Round lake is a big bowl with very little structure--hence the cribs. It is hard to locate fish and they aren't where you think they would be. Pike lake has better structure and weed lines. Many people fish around the rock piles but I've never done well there. I had better luck near the west shore weeds and just drifting with crawler harnesses across the main lake on a windy day. For panfish just go into the channel towards Amik lake and fish around the lily pads.

My family and I will be heading up here for 4 days in just over a week. I've only ice fished these lakes twice, and it was more of a sit around and watch tip ups type of trip. My question is this, my family is hoping to have a fish fry our last evening we are there. What are my best options for getting enough fish for one meal for 5-6 people? We are staying on Round Lake. Am I better off hitting up other lakes? I'm mainly looking for panfish and some eater sized walleye. I know there are cribs in Round and Pike, are there any that are more productive? Should I focus on weedlines instead? Are those rock humps in Round a good place to start for walleye? I've read back quite a few posts to get some info, but any direct information would be much appreciated. I know I sound like a rookie, it's just that my family leans of me for finding the fish and this is a new body of water for me, so any information you are willing to share will be more than what I've got thus far.

Fished Sunday afternoon with my brother. Water was in low 70's on all four lakes. Weeds are slowly developing. Amazing how dark Amik has become since the drought broke and all the pent-up tannic acid had flowed into the lakes. We targeted northern and caught 40 fish with a few walleye, smallies and one muskie for good measure. All on artificials. Water is still high and I had an inch and a half in my gauge for Sunday and Monday. Skeeters are death.

Fished Sunday and Monday afternoons. Did well pulling cranks for both northern and walleye. Water temps were around 55 degrees. Loading docks and buoys are in and water remains very high. Saw a loon on it's nest in Rice Creek.

I'm guessing the chain is ice free by now but was wondering if the water is too high to get my pontoon under the bridge from Round.. Anybody been out fishing yet?

Last night the south end of round was covered in dark ice while the north half was covered in white ice. This morning the ice is gone from the south end and the north ice is very dark. Pike is ice free. Picture is looking west from the thoroughfare bridge last night. As you can see the water is VERY high.
