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.

    • Trump already signalling willingness to work with Democrats in order to bypass House conservatives....     http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/national-international/Trump-Attacks-Conservative-Lawmakers-Over-Health-Bill-417117223.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_BAYBrand   So now we have a supposedly extreme right-leaning Republican president cozying up to Democrats?   What would Uncle Ben think?....            
    • In order to determine which direction to go with healthcare, one fundamental question must be answered.  If an American walks in to a hospital with a sick child or with some sickness themselves and has a treatable medical condition, should a provider have a right to refuse service to that person or their child based on ability to pay?  We cannot have a true free market system unless we are truly callous enough to turn poor people away at the door.  I'm not there.
    • Ice is good in some areas of main lake but bad in areas with moving water / springs. All resort / outfitter access's are closed to vehicles but some are open to four-wheelers. side by sides, and snowmobiles including Morris Point, Long Point, Dales's and Arnesen's, which still has fish houses available as well.  As always, use a resort or outfitter road for safety as they are monitored daily.  Walleye bite has been good with many keepers among smaller fish. Fish are aggressive and having a flasher is helpful.  Jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  17-33 ft.  Best colors glow pink/red and gold. Tip up fishing for pike on fire.  Many flags of northern pike in back bays and reefs.
      Rainy River spring fishing is ON!  The Rainy River is open all the way to Wheeler's Point. Birchdale, Frontier, Vidas, and Timbermill landings are open to all boats. Wheeler's Point will be open in a day or so.  Walleye fishing has been excellent. Many eater walleyes so far with a few monsters. Right now a 1/2 - 3/4 ounce jig is enough to get to the bottom while tipped with 1 or 2 frozen shiners. Pink, orange and gold are hot colors. Many sturgeon being boated as well.     Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are unstable as current areas are opening up quickly.  Travel with caution. Many resorts using airboats at this point.  Fish houses on LOW can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.  
    • I loved BBs post game the other nite after the canucks game,  he nailed it.  Guys got to step it up and play, outside of granny and staal, the rest look like they just started playing.  Lack luster for sure.  Im still hoping they come out and play like I know they are capable of but not looking good
    • This is what I have so far and I think I'll be changing A. Hackney B. KVD C. Ehrler D. Howell E. Lucas   I don't feel confidence about any of them except KVD haha Well I already made a switched and put Dafoe in bucket A for Hackney.
    •   I asked the same thing about a Month ago...must be a contract/money issue...we don't spend money foolishly 
    • Live Target for me. Tried a Lunkerhunt and it kept sinking and holding water.
    • Oh, the hat?  Correct, I was using clone stamp to build the hat.  Of all the problems with my photoshopped images, your issue is with the hat?  I thought the crude cutting and pasting was bad enough that nobody would notice the hat.      Still, you're a massive tool and I have accepted your challenge to do it better.
