Virgil,

The PLC has an extensive network of man made cribs in both Pike and Round Lake. We do well for good eating size crappie from mid-June until October on the cribs. Just a gold or blood red hook with live minnow a few feet off bottom. (have to be on top of the crib) The walleye fishing can be dynamite right in the Thoroughfare throwing small crankbaits like UL4 Shad Raps from opener till early June and I do well again later summer early fall. (right at dusk) Otherwise fish the rock piles on Pike and Round and you'll catch walleye all summer long dragging a leech or on slip bobbers. The chain has an abundance of small walleye if you know when/where to catch them.

Tight Lines JK

Hey Shad,

What's your story (no, not trying to be mean or anything)....You have place on the Chain? Would love to share thoughts and ideas....I have been on the Chain for over 51 years- ok, that goes back to when my dad took me there when I was 6 months, but you get the hint...

Message me...

Thanks,

OOBA

Hi- new to fishing for walleye and parents bought a cabin on the chain couple yrs ago. I have struggled to catch crappies and walleyed here with any consistency. WAs just hoping someone could steer me into the right direction as far as what to use and where, I don't expect any body to tell me there hotspot. Maybe there is not many fish in the lake I'm not real sure any help would be great. Also if any of the 4 lakes are better than the others. I usually try to troll for walleye, and have not had much luck with crappies at all in the middle of the summer? Any suggestions? Thanks.....

Sounds like the ice has been out now for at least 4-5 days. Almsot a full month ahead of last year.

Thought I'd revive this post...maybe? Anyone been out this winter? I have always had very up-and-down trips here ice fishing. We generally target walleye/northern on shorelines setting tip ups from 4-12 FOW. Wondering if anyone has tried to target the cribs or the humps on N. Round through the ice? PM me if you would rather, but if anyone has actually hit this chain post away!

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.
