Buffalo Bass

12 posts in this topic

I fish Buffalo for league next week and was wondering what patterns are working this time of year. In the past the lake has had a die off of weeds and finding any standing weeds seemed key. And one year when the water was really high the channel to Deer was killer.

I'll be out tommorow Tuesday as well. It is an all species league but we fish for bass first pike second. Just a heads up, this lake will be highly pressured on Tuesday.

Our league fished it two thursdays ago. 11 boats, 22 guys, from 6-9pm. Six fish weighed in... I think that about sums it up for Buffalo lake. Alot of Dink walleyes (under 12 inches) A couple Dandy pike that bite me and my partner off (while fishing for bass) Best fish of the evening though was a Smallie around 19 inches. Personally... I won't be wasting my time on that lake again until I have to. There are simply much much better lakes in the area in my opinion. smirk.gif

It receives to much pressure for a lake its size. Also doesn't help its inside the city limits.

Yeah, I don't particularily care for this lake either. It does hold some big pike and bass, but it is really hit and miss in my past experiences.

We worked really hard all night for 3 bass. caught a 14 and an 18 on the south side pulling a spinnerbait over the weeds. And another 17 incher on the east side by the sandy cliff.

I thought it would be a good night with the storms???? coming in at 3 pm. Actually though the afternoon clouds looked a lot better than the evening ones.

I didn't get home until around 11 pm and will try to post a picture tonight!

Nice looking fish, they looked paler when we pulled them from the lake but the picture turned out nice.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
