      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Buffalo Crappie Report

Recommended Posts

fishhook8

Was on Buffalo today from 6:30 to 3:30 in front of the Court House. We caught 15 plus crappie and 4 or so sunfish. The first half hour was easy then they got finicky. What finally work was (there were fish from the bottom (19')up about 5'all day was to slowly pull the small red glow jig with a wax worm up thru the fish they would just lightly inhale it. Some of or group of 12 didnt catch a fish. Also one of our group was in the 30' hole using a spring bobber he caught fish while the others didnt.

Nice job...you figured out a "trigger" mechanism...I didn't have as good a luck. I fished Middle Lake and marked fish all day. Tried iceflies, tiny (1/64th) jigs, plain hooks in red and white glow, waxies, minnows, jigging, deadsticking, slow retrieves, fast retrieves, I tried trolling the weedline (drilled 483 holes, all connected to one another, then slowly drove my Ford Ranger along side the holes, pulling a tiny Mepps Spinner out the window)...nothing worked! Caught 2 crappies in about 4 hrs. Released them both and stopped at Cub Foods on the way home... grin.gif --AK

I was out on Buffalo from 1pm-5pm over the hole. I didn't bring any waxies, and I'm sorry for that. Guy right next to me was on waxies, he caught 5 in the same 4 hours. I was on crappie minnows, I caught one and had a bunch of bait lickers, lost them all - gotta relax and let them eat, I keep telling myself! smile.gif I was using really small minnows, too. They are still light biters, but yes, they are waking up!

Just to inform everyone to use caution on the park access I pulled a kids car out of the road 2 days ago there was a hole in the road that was big enough for them to drop a tire in. I really dont know how they got as far as they did in a car as the road is kind of nasty. fished in the deep hole for about a hour and caught 6 crappies, still biting really light. wax worms and small jigs about 18 to 20 feet down. I havent had any luck all winter trying to catch the fish in the lower depths when they are stacked up ,only have been able to coax some off the top of the schools.

Don't you just love it, when people drill holes right in the middle of a plowed road? Too lazy to walk in the snow away from a plowed roadway...now the wind driven snowmelt swirls into an open hole and creates a bigger hole! Just be more careful if you're out there at night...

Ya, I was just thinkin' tonight driving home there that I don't think I'd be out at night right now if I didn't scout a path during the day, this makes me feel justified.

Permanent houses are almost all off Buffalo.

I got out on buffalo today around 11 and fished until 730, managed 6 craps is all but all were eatin size so not complaining. Noticed all most all the permanant houses were off like the last post said. Question tho, why don't the dummys with there 100 mile an hour snowmobiles tear up the lake now instead of buzzing by us a month ago? They darn near got the whole lake now and nobody to piss off.........

maybe because its 40 degrees out and water on the ice,not so much fun on a sled,and all the garbage the so called fishermen have left for somebody who really cares about our lakes including me to pick up,not very fun to run over propane bottles on a sled,so everyone out on the lakes please pick up the garbage so we all dont have to see it out crappie fishing this spring,and so the people who actually live on the lake wont call all the ice fisherman slobs

I really doubt the hole in the road was made by a fisherman. what happens when you plow roads on a lake is you end up with the large drifts on the edge of the road which greatly adds to the weight in a smaller area. all you need then is a small crack for the water to push up through from the snow weight,as the water is forced up it continues to cut the whole bigger. seen this happen before when we used to plow bait ponds.

Dunno about this morning or last night, but prior to that, the slush-melt on top had refroze. I saw minivans and full size trucks out on Tuesday on top of frozen slush. Two weekends ago, I measured the ice on Buffalo at 21".

I'd stay off Pulaski, tho.

For the last couple days, I've seen full size trucks out on Lake Sarah, too.

      Cliff is right. If the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw or lip (aka an underbite), then it’s a whitefish. If the lower lip is even with or extends past the upper lip, then it’s a Cisco.  This according to the DNR website. Cisco’s also seem to have an irredescent hue to them vs. whitefish, which in Lake V have a slight brown/yellow hue to them. Hard to explain in words. Bleeding fish...plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it.  I gill them. Leaves your fillets pearly white and creates way less blood and slime during the fillet process. Many say the fillet tastes better too.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area? 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!
