shore fishing on buffalo along the road.

9 posts in this topic

Every time I drive by Buffalo in the evening I see people sitting in lawn chairs with lines out, no bobbers rods propped up. like people do when they are fishing the river for walleyes. What are these guys fishing for??? I know walleyes like to spawn in gravel areas, no accusations, just a hunch?

Sounds like a catfish tactic to me. Buffalo have catfish in it?

There are a few catfish in there, but there are many panfish to be had along the shorelines of Buffalo. The north and south ends are best.

It is a good time of year for carp from south or north shore, weight something dead to the bottom and you will find them. And they are getting BIG. The little channel cats are all over the lake, midlake and near shore, too. They are becoming pesky.

I have chatted with several of these people. They are fishing for catfish. I have seen some of these fish, they are worth the time, if your looking for some fun. Biggest so far 12lbs.

But you will catch alot of bullheads at the same time.

That Makes sense to me know. I didn't know Buffalo had alot of catfish. It is attatched to the crow though. Sounds fun I will have to try it sometime. Since thats about all Buffalo will be worth. It's got big eyes in it if you can find them. Sure was crappy last year though.

Blackbas, the walleyes for have been going while crappie fishing. If you don't mind catching 9 inch eyes, the litle bait stealer. I had only heard of a handfull of guys that caught good size walleyes during ice period. Maybe have to give the lake about 2 to 3 years and it could be one of best lakes in wright cty.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
