I heard there is fair northern fishing on this lake. A group of old freinds want to go CPR tip up fishing. Plus i'm taking my wife, so is the panfishing there at least fair I don't care about size just want her to have fun. I see the lake is only 7 feet deep. Any help would be great. Or ideas on other places to look.

Seen some nice pike come out of there this summer, but also heard that the spearing guys had a hay day out there last winter. I have had a few friends out there tip-up fishing this year with no results. I would guess the pan fish would be ok as there are tons of them out there in the summer but no real report as I have not hit it yet this winter. I do believe that there is a 12' hole out from where the fishing pier is in the summer.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
