Buffalo fish

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone know when buffalo fish go into the streams and spawn? Bowfishing opens in 1 week now, and was wondering if they will be spawning by then.

The buffs have spawned half way up the state of Iowa. You have some time before it reaches here. poutpro, do you fish in MN or ND.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
