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.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
