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.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
