I really wouldn't recomend either. Buffalo has more perch. I don't know about sunnie but during the spring it has some good spawnig spots. Always try Constance. Tons of em out there just not the size.

Where is Constance at exactly? Is it close to Palaski?

And is little palaski connected to palaski?

thanks again

All the perch on Buffalo are stunted. It will be hard to find a perch over 8". As far as the gills, there are some dandys in buffalo. They are pretty easyto find in the spring and summer, but in the winter you have to do some searching. I have caught a lot of gills through the ice, but you need to work at it.

I'll second that buffalo has some nice sunnys. Two summers ago I caught 4 in one day trolling shad raps for walleyes. They were dinner plate sized. They really put up a fight. I released them. I havn't caught one like that since. I have no idea how to find them summer or winter. That was just dumb luck.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
