shore fishing

8 posts in this topic

anyone having any luck shore fishing around the buffalo area. not looking for any lakes just wondering if anyone has caught any panfish in shallow yet. I went out and tried a lake today but it was cold and no fish shallow yet. I think the cold pushed them back out and it will be another week or two before they really start biting. thanks

My best guess, you will need to wait 2 weeks to find any shore fishing. The water is just to cold, for pannies to come into the shallows.

How do you fish for them from shore? What kind of rig?

Try a little bobber, 16" of drop to a #4 aberdeen hook baited with a crappie minnow. Simple is better.

I like a flu-flu with waxies or maggies, Size 6 hooks with minnows, (small crappie minnows up to small fatheads) let the fish tell what they like. I have found many of the larger crappies prefer larger minnows. Most of these fish have been suspended, sometimes over 10 to 18ft of water.

Go small first then work your way up.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
