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

Going up to Big Round this weekend and I was curious what the ice was looking like and if they've been taking trucks out recently.  Thanks.

My 2 brothers and I are coming up to Big Round this weekend to get a way for a few days and was hoping to find some crappies and walleyes. We have never fished this lake and are just looking for a couple places to start. When looking at a lake map, it seems like there is a lot of diversity in this body of water, so im not sure where to start. Not looking to steal anyone's hot-spot, or take our limits home, we just want a weekend getaway and to catch some fish at the same time. I have plenty of tried and true spots I would be more then happy to share down in the Eau Claire County area if that is of interest. Thanks in advance. Stay safe, and good luck

Round has been pretty consistent. Both walleye and pike have been targeted. Walleye we have pushed a bit deeper and downsized. Pike have been a bit deeper as well. Focusing on exact locations has helped up this time of year. Deep edges. Weed lines. Cribs. I have openings this weekend for those interested in a trip or shack rental.

Fishing has been decent. Pike and walleye have been caught is similar areas near deep water. Windows seem to be a bit shorter this week since the warm weather kicked in. Minimal snow on the ice. 17 inches of ice yesterday. Book a trip today! 7154108696
