Plowing Buffalo Lake

7 posts in this topic

I've been fishing on buffalo lake the past couple days and pulling the portable through that snow is just terrible. Does anyone know if somebody will plow a road out there the ice is plenty thick?

Is there any road at all plowed out there. I was planning on going tonight.

Not really there are tire tracks going out from the sturgis park launch but thats it. The tracks dont go out very far either. If your going to try it you need 4 wheel drive for sure.

That is what I am thinking, I have 4wd and have made it out in conditions like this before, but I do not want to get stuck out there.

well I ventured out off of sturgis launch yesterday and it didn't work so well I got stuck about 80 yards out but luckily got it off... Just gonna have to wait for the snow to melt I guess...

I dont know you'd be able to make it out a little ways atleast off of the sturgis park launch but I got stuck in my 4 wheel drive, my buddy had to help push me out. There are tire tracks but the problem is getting turned back around.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
