Public Access

I recently went to Buffalo Lake for the first time. I tried to put the boat in at the east park access. Once unable to float the boat off the trailer I proceeded to drive out and was dragging the bottom of my trailer, I thought was a participant at a tractor pull with the weight digging in. Well anyways, what some of the other public access in the area with problems? So I know not try there. Thanks

I know of constance that may be a little shallow. And for a future note, if your gonna fish Buffalo, use the north landing. Easily the best on the lake.

You need to stay away from that east access unless the water is up. The city is not very motivated to keep that access usable. The north/northwest access is the best, and the south access is pretty usable most of the year, unless the water goes down another foot or two, then it would be tough.

I went to Constance about a week ago to run the motor for awhile, and the landing is in tough shape for larger boats, with such low water levels.I had to back way out to load and unload.I got my 16 ft. in and out okay, but I had to get creative while loading it.

With Constance, I would recommend launching on the steeper part of the bank. I don't even try to find the concrete ramp any more. I launch my bass boat that way. smile.gif If you don't have a 4wd, I don't recommend going that route, since you will need it to pull up that hill.

Some good ones I know of are Pulaski and Cedar. Rock lake is also in good shape. I'll try to post more as I fish them.

There was a flyer posted on the bulletin board at the north landing on Buffalo Lake with the DNR phone number encouraging anyone with a complaint about the landing to contact the DNR. I stopped by there on Sunday of opening weekend to check out the landing and saw the flyer. Looks shallow but I haven't put a boat in Buffalo. I figured it must be a bit of a challenge or someone wouldn't have posted the DNR number.

I launched at the north access last Tuesday with my bass boat with no problem. I do recommend trimming up your motor, since there is a mound of prop-wash out from the end of the ramp a little ways.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
