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.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
