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.

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      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.
