Anyone Planning on doing any pan fishing before the ice is gone?

8 posts in this topic

I went to buffalo lake last night. I was one of about 5 people out fishing last night. Kind of nice to have the lake to yourself. Is anyone planning on doing any ice fishing yet this season?

How was the snow depth for traveling on the lake? The nite jobs been keeping me off the lake for now.

As of last night I went in on the landing near the skating rink and there was a road plowed out to the middle of the lake. I wanted to go to the 30ft hole so I followed a line I made on my gps a few weeks ago where a road used to be plowed.

4wd is prolly a good idea out there right now. Snow is still thick in some spots, even with 4wd I was finding it to be a challenging drive out there.

Are you kidding?? This and early ice are the best times to ice pannies. Excuse me, I'm a panfish geek.

I went out this afternoon on Buffalo for a little while, fished the North and it was slow but have been getting them real good in the past week. 22" ice.

Where you out in front of where the fountain is. Looked like someone was having a fun time putting their shack up.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
