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.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
