Big Round Lake - Sawyer County

7 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone has had much luck lately. I am planning on going to our cabin next weekend and am going to try my luck on the lake. Also, I am trying to get a good map of the lake (contours, depth, ect.) and also trying to see what type of fish are in the lake...I have looked at the WI DNR HSOforum, but can't seem to find what I am looking for...any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Walleyes, perch, small mouth, muskies, and you'll find northerns in Little Round and Richardson's Bay. Walleyes run a little small but there's good numbers there. If you find the perch, they run pretty nice, caught one of the biggest perch I've ever caught out of there. Also good numbers and size on the small mouths.

About 6 or 7 years ago the DNR put some lake trout in there. Not sure if any are still in there or not or if they put any more in it. You could call the DNR office in Hayward and find out though.

Well, we had a great weekend despite the cold front and rain that moved in Saturday evening. Friday afternoon I was able to catch a decent northern and got into the best fishing of the weekend Friday evening catching a slew of smallies. Saturday afternoon we went back out and were able to catch a few more bass. Sunday, fighting the weather, we went out one last time and only caught 2 fish. One small smallie, and the next was the fish of the weekend. A 7 pound northern. All fish were released and look forward to catching more when we venture to the cabin more this year.

Thanks again for everyone's help, I was able to pick up a decent map which helped locate the fish we were targeting.

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
