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.

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
