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.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?

      Crazy birds!  Seen 2 jakes that would putt and cut like hens, a little deeper sound of course, and would talk back to me and Abi.  The Tom was absolutely quiet and disinterested.   Been along time since birds were this quiet.  Tough to make moves.  Probably just better to sit tight and wait.   Good luck.
