How much ice is there now? Would it be safe to drive a 4 wheeler out to the deep spot? I've only been fishing there for a few years, so I'm not too comfortable driving around the lake.

I was on buff. on Tuesday and ther was 8-9" but I was only a few 100 yds from shore out form the court house. I put out a house with a 4 wheeler you should be oaky if you stay near shore. Thay say 8" is good for a small car but you will not see me out there in one till there is a good 12" of ice. The middle of the lake has some deeps holes where the ice tends to be slower at forming so if you go out there be safe.

There's decent spots on all sides, I wouldn't be in a rush to join the gaggles of houses in the usual spots. The craps have been biting the same in unpopular spots are they are in popular spots. In fact, the geographic definition of the infamous "Courthouse" spot changes every year out there based on the lemming packs... Don't be afraid to plot your own course on Buffalo, you'll probably enjoy yourself more as the party heats up out there. The ice is pretty uniform everywhere, except shore inflows, at 10" or so in 20 FOW as of Thursday. I try to stay away from the traffic lanes away from the premature trucks on the ice... Good Luck!

Well.......I went to Buffalo this weekend. We are pulling our house off of the lake. There are some real (Contact US Regarding This Word) out there. Sunday there was 3 full size pickups within 10' of our fish house.

So how thick is the ice now? Last time I was on Buffalo was last Thursday (it was quiet then), and it was 10".

I watched the Buffalo Lake madhouse on Sunday from the comfort and safety of my house (my real house, I mean) in sheer amazement. The worst days of the year out there are the weekend days between Christmas and New Years holidays. I suspect this Fri, Sat and possibly Sun will be repeats of yesterday.

With 160 lakes in Wright County alone, it's a good idea to find somewhere else to go during this week. smile.gif Once all the vacations are over, it'll get back to relative normalcy.

There's between 11-12" as of Saturday. I just can't believe that there's any fish left in that lake. What are some other alternatives that you would suggest? I'm thinking Mink/Sommers.

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?
