Use the launch on the NW side of the lake.

Why that one as opposed to others?

Deeper, you won't have to swamp your truck to launch. smile.gif

North side is a DNR access. East access is a City of Buffalo access and it is way too shallow right now. The County access on the south side is an unknown for me, since I live on the north side - someone else want to comment.

The south one is earthen I think. It is by the channel to either mink or deer(can't keep them straight) which ever one is the most eastern.

I don't mind the city park launch as long as its not to shallow.

The DNR launch you have to drive across the street to park.

I always liked the southeast launch 'cause if there's room, and you don't mind getting yer legs wet, you can launch on the beach and then pull yer rig forward a touch and there it is when you get back; no "holding pattern". I didn't like the city launch, 'cause that was often the amateur hour, or nasty-yelling-at-yer-neighbors ramp. The northwest ramp is a good one, but there is the issue of parking across the hwy and schlepping yer stuff across.

The east ramp is ok, ONLY, if you have a small boat. Or you need to wash out the floor matts in your truck. If guys think walking across the street is a far? Check out the ramp off kings road going to minnetonka. Its only 200 yards parking lot to ramp, with a steep hill. The northwest access is the best on Buffalo lake. The south ramp does have a concrete slab but some people like playing in the water.

I prefer to float the boat, walk on a dry dock, step into my boat to launch. When I load up its drive boat on trailor. Step from boat to dock, then get into my truck and pull out then drain boat and finish tying down.

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.

      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.

      Gents, Anyone been to OT lately that could comment on ease of ice travel. Snow depth, drifts and ice.  Would traveling nearly anywhere be acceptable with exception to rivers/creeks?

      Went by yesterday. Just a pile of steel sheeting and ashes. Sad.
