Fished round 2/9-2/11. Ice was in great shape (trucks everywhere). I did hit a small slush spot of the beaten path but nothing to worry about. Weather was COLD. This was my first time ice fishing round. Went after walleye. Fished a submerged hump Friday night (3-630PM). Had one take a foot of line and drop it. Saturday night (3-6PM) I tried a nice weedy bay. One little pike and a miss. Sunday morning (7-1030AM and it was -16 degrees on the truck) I tried a rocky point. Missed one. Went into a weedy bay and caught a nice pike. That was it. Tried jigging (with every bait in my box), had a few lookers but no takers. Friday was the first time I got skunked on a outing all year (I've been on the ice every weekend since 12/15). Heck, I didn't even mark a fish in over 40 holes. Don't consider myself a pro but I'm not a bad fisherman. Anybody else having better luck? I tried all I could for 3 days and was disappointed to say the least.

On a side note I saw a guy with a sleeper shack on the ice. A NICE one. He was camped out on a rocky point most of the weekend. Wanted to knock on the door and ask to come in and fish with him. Never have seen such a thing. 

My family got a place on round this last year and this is my 3rd weekend fishing it in general. I will learn. From what I hear this is an amazing fishery and I cannot wait to explore more.

As always best of luck, FH

From the great State of Illinois, the Northwood set sail on Big Round last week from Oct 1 thru Oct 6 on Round Lake.  A few days were very windy so fishing was tough.  On the days we were out there, the action was fairly good, with some nice smallies upwards of 20 inches and 5 pounds.  We used floating jigs and minnows, casted some slip bobbers and landed some northern pike on drop shot rigs while retrieving.  Generally fished in 12-20 fow around cribs and other structures and debris.  Had good luck around the old Campground and Sandy Bar.  The leaves changed almost overnight from Tuesday to Thursday.  Another great week in the northwoods of Wisconsin.  Thanks Lynn and Marci.

Didn't get to fish near as much as I wanted to but I never do. Found fish in only one spot (doesn't help I didn't have any electronics).  In 3 hours of fishing I managed 2 smallies (fat and very healthy looking) and 8 nice gills. All on worms and night crawlers in what I think was 15-20FOW. There is amazing structure on this lake but it was hard to find and even harder to stay on with a pontoon and no depth finder. Will bring the boat next year and hit it way harder. Saw people gill fishing with the family quite a bit but few people out really getting after it. It was amazing to me that there wasn't more fisherman. Does everyone just fish the flowage?

Check out you tube and search Tom Boley.  He has some great videos from out there.

Not a report.

In laws just got a place on round. Heading up there for the first time this holiday weekend. Looking for some info on what bait is effective this time of year for walleyes and smallmouth. I'm open to fishing with live or artificial.  I will report back at weekends end to let everyone know how the bite is.

Best of luck, FH
