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.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
