Buffalo Lake fishing contest on Feb 7th, 2009

Recommended Posts

Bob Pike

Jaycees are putting a fishing contest on Buffalo lake on Saturday (2/7/2009). Contest is from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.

I have donated several ice fishing prizes for the Jaycee to give out as door prizes.

I will also be selling bait and some "limited tackle" on the lake for the contest.

Hope to see ya out there.

What is the contest "Fish"?

How much is the cost for entry?

Is it a certain portion of the lake, houses or no houses?

After last weekend's tourney on Beebe, I be there are a lot of fishermen trying to redeem themselves. (like me)

The DNR stopped in my bait shop and told me I could not sell minnows on the lake. Sorry, I tried.

What did they have as prizes? Grand daughters birthday party was more important than fishing contest for me.

I think the biggest fish was a 15 pound northern (give or take), second was another decent Northern (8 lbs?), and 3rd was a 5 pound bass. Another guy, who I went to school with several years ago got a prize for most panfish. (caught his limit of crappies)

1st place was a new auger, second place was a Eskimo quick flip 2 portable flip-over fishhouse. Gave away a lot of cash prizes as well. Nicely done, had a good time. It was nice to be able to use a portable on such a windy day.

tsande00 was there a lot of people out there? Didn't seem like it when I drove by a little before start time. Gas station said they weren't that busy either.

It was hard to tell because of the vast area setup for the tournament. Hard to know who was fishing the tournament and who was just out there to fish (a lot of perms that looked like they had been out there for a long time).

I would guess much fewer than 500 people there, but I could be way off. Seemed like there was way more participating in the Beebe lake tourney. Probably only 100 standing around afterwards waiting for the prizes to be named.

Somebody else correct me if I'm wrong.

      I started using a chain hoist like this 2 years ago. Much easier for one or two people than a rope block & tackle. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004PX1F9S/ref=psdc_511406_t1_B009F257DE?th=1

      I thought I read some where Cliff mentioned 66-67 over the weekend and it'll start to slide now with cooler temps.

      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅
    • ozzie
      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁

      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away.

      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster
