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.

      Looks like Peltier Lake is locked up. Clear Lake was about 97% locked up. Just one little open hole in the middle. Forest Lake also looked to be at least 95% iced up. There were a couple small holes that a bunch of swans were keeping open. Someone on the north shore still has their dock out, and pontoon in the water! They better take advantage of this warm up and get to work!    Would appreciate more reports, especially in Isanti County and Hinckley area.

      I drove by the chain the other day and it looked to be locked up.  Don or anyone else have thickness updates? thanks!

      By my sons stand he sees about 15 to 20 of them scraping around for acorns. Drives him nuts thinking he has the 20 point buck coming in!  😟

      Nevermind the above post. Take a look at the webcams around the lake and there is very little open water. I had read Raven77's report and with the calm conditions and cold she iced up. If a good wind blows it may open up some but by the looks of things it will not happen again until spring. Lets hope for good safe ice conditions this winter and a nice snowpack for the snowmobiles.   Steve

      Where were all these critters back when the season was open?  Been seeing several just about every day during the gun season - none while hunting during the early bow season.  Oh well, looks like a promising spring.

      Really liking the Mountain Mikes reproduction skulls. This is the third one and so much easier than boiling!! 20 bucks at Mills. They have fancy skulls also but I really like the white.

      Good luck this winter cookie and be safe!

      So sad to hear about the fire yesterday. Appears they are considering rebuilding and I am hopeful they are better than ever in the future!

      And just like that there was ice as far as you could see? From what I have been herring walking traffic this weekend as long as this mild warm up and winds do not change everything.  tyler did go out yesterday and got 1 plus a miss. I personally will not be on the lake until blue thunder can drive out there. All though we added a small Kia to the fleet .  Yesterday the phone was crazy with fishermen calling about how much ice. I'm hereing 3 to 5 closer in.   We have been busy final prepping the house's and trucks. plus bow hunting Looks like I may be adding a grand ice castle to the fleet  plus I added California fish house last year at the end of the season.

      So whos all anxious for this season spearing? I been watching vids lately on youtube getting all pumped up for this coming season.   What is everybody's thoughts on the pike slot zones? I think its gonna be a tough one this year to try judging the sizes in the hole. Any clue if this is a forever thing or only experimental for the zones?
