Buffalo Lake

10 posts in this topic

I am going to be fishing Buffalo Lake Tomorrow morning. Anybody have any ideas on what is working and what areas of the lake have been producing fish? Depth, Minnows, leeches or crawlers??? Jigs, spinners?

Any feedback would be great! Thanks much and good fishing!

Last week I found some bass on the south milfoil edge, the milfoil was several 100 yards off shore, north of the point on the south end. Working around the edges with plastics or covering ground with spinnerbaits.

Fished a few common areas and some not so and had no takers for walleyes. Even fished the thick weed cover as normally can get into a mix of northerns and 'eyes but no such luck.

I was out yesterday from 10a.m. to 7p.m. I'm glad I had my drift sock. The report goes like this.

1. drifted across 7ft flat (nada)

2. proceded towards the flowage to deer and started drifting in the direction towards mill creek using a spinner on a 4ft snell tipped w/ a fathead. made about 12 drifts came up w/ Five eyes 8" to 11" One 8" perch Six Crappies 7.5" to 11.5" let everything go.

HOPE THAT HELPS. GOOD LUCK W/ FINDING BIGGER EYES.

Went out there on Wednesday but was nearly blown off the lake. No luck but it was hard staying on one spot. I will try again Saturday morning to see what happens.

Has anybody caught any walleyes bigger than 15" out there. Pretty slow when I was out there and didn't see much of any cathing going on.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
