what is working on Buffalo?

19 posts in this topic

Sounds like the walleyes are small...how are the bass and northerns doing? I am fishing it for the first time in a few years this evening, any tips?

If you are fishing for bass, they are on the outside milfoil edge at the moment. You can find milfoil on the north, east, and south sides. Good luck!

Thanks, I will give it a shot. I will plan on working plastics or spinnerbaits to cover some ground, any other suggestions.

Plastics or a jig would be good. Don't be afraid to fish with the wind, since I had a more aggressive bite in the wind.

Just largemouth at the moment. The smallies were not biting the last time I was out there on my smallie holes. smile.gif

Worked in and around the south milfoil patch last night...boated 2 nice largemouth and lost a really good one at the side of the boat (all the good ones get away). I couldnt belive there was not northerns there.

Nice! Good to hear there's some LM action again out there this year.

Sluggo - were you using jerkbaits, drop-shot, shakey heads or _____ for the smallies? I was shut down on another local smallie lake the day after opener no matter what I used or how finess-ey I went.

Most of the time I get them on a pig-n-jig. However, elsewhere on other lakes/rivers I usually get them on x-raps, the bigger one's or the husky jerks.

I've got Long Lake out by Spicer for Midwest Sportsman Saturday. That will probably be enough punishment for the weekend. smile.gif

We did as well as to be expected without prefishing it. We didn't have big fish with a five pounder, and only caught four fish. We had 12.6 pounds for our four. I think 20 pounds won it. smile.gif

Sluggomaster, what did you throw the most? I was Green lake, saturday, there was a walleye tourney going also. I fished smallies, had a blast, most on beds. Long lake is a good bass lake, 15yrs ago you could get a limit of walleyes in an hour. I grew-up in New London, my parents now live on Norway lake. Someday I should fish bass tourney there. It is also a great lake for L.M. bass.

I could not get a bite on anything other than a large jig/trailer. It's the same every year. There were 26 boats, which makes that lake fish very small. I hope they take it off the schedule next year, since there is not enough water out there for that many boats. smile.gif

      What happened to all of the old posts/pages?

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.
