I have both summer and winter. There are a few decent bass to be had in the summer. In the winter Ive gone after the panfish but wasnt impressed. There are a lot of small perch. The crappies and 'gills are your average metro size. No walleyes exist, or their shouldnt be any...

I live right by the lake and fished it many times. I fished it alot in the summer as a young kid and never caught much of anything. I talked to a guy that lived on the lake and he said that basically the only thing left in the lake is carp and small panfish... not a very good fishing lake. Had fun at the beach on summer days tho.

The lake has gone under many transformations lately. It is small, but due to the limited access, has lots of possiblities,

I have seen lots of snakes and bass caught, but like others have said many small pannies. There is one deep spot straight out from the steps going down to the lake from the parking lot.

      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!
