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.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
