      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.

Where have all the fisherman gone? This fall there has only been a hand full of guys fishing buffalo lake. We are all waiting for ice, but what will we find if nobody is fishing it now? If anyone has been on buffalo fishing during Nov. let me know. I have found some reasonable fishing. just need to have the ice house heater.

Ronnie, There is some walleyes coming into the shallows after dark on buffalo. The walleyes I have found, are working rocky areas, 3-5 ft of water with minnows.

A couple other areas I have found for shore fishing is along the crow river. Corners have been my best areas, with pike being most active. Still looking for the corner holding walleyes.

hello jigginjim thanks for the great info I am going to give it a try tonight. I tried the south end a couple of times last week by the landing. Got a couple of bites but they were realy light. Just wondering if you bobber fishing or just jiggin? I couldn't tell you if they were walleyes that were biting, because i never saw them. Was ther any decent size to the ones you caught? thank in advance for any further info smile.gif

ronnie, I have tried both jiggin and bobber fishing. Lately bobber fishing the shorelines, has only given up small walleyes. (13in. max) Jiggin had produced better before the lake temp. dropped below 39 degrees. After that the walleyes haven't been willing to chase baits down.

Buffalo lake is about had it, until we get ice or, weather that will allow boat travel.

Temps are producing 1/2 inch of ice per night the last few nights. This according to the DNR. The ice (and lack thereof) is still very unsafe.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
