I am sad to report the passing of Aaron Buffington, who used to post on here often as So Haaad. He was a nice young man and loved the outdoors.

BUFFINGTON, AARON J.

Aaron James Buffington, son of Richard and Cheryl Buffington of Alexandria, MN, died peacefully at his home in Blaine, MN after a courageous battle with kidney cancer. Born on August 12, 1973 in Alexandria, MN, and growing up on Lake Darling, Aaron enjoyed fishing, swimming, and hanging out with his Tabberts gang of friends. After high school graduation, Aaron attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth and later received a Master’s Degree from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. Aaron was employed as a City Planner for the City of Forest Lake. On April 3, 2008, Aaron married Stephanie Persons in a beach ceremony in Naples, Florida. Aaron and Stephanie made their home in Blaine, MN where they raised their 2-year-old son, Lucas. Aaron viewed his son as the “light of his life.” Family and friends were important to Aaron. Conversations and just relaxing at the lake with his mom were some of his favorite times. He enjoyed hunting and fly fishing with his dad and brother Jason. He shared the love of the outdoors and the mountains with his sister Michelle. His nieces and nephews held a special place in his heart. Aaron was involved in long distance running and was considered an inspiration to fellow runners. Aaron is survived by loving wife, Stephanie (Persons); son, Lucas; parents: Rich & Cheryl Buffington of Alexandria; brother, Jason (Liz) Buffington; sister, Michelle Wuollet (Tony); nephews: Patrick, Gordon, Garrett & Cooper; nieces: Kjirsten & Catherine, and many other relatives & friends. Our hearts are saddened with the passing of our dear Aaron. We will honor his life by continuing to live, laugh, and love as Aaron taught us to do so well. Visitation at KOZLAK-RADULOVICH BLAINE CHAPEL (107th Ave. NE & Hwy. 65) Sunday (TODAY) from 4-7 PM. Memorial service at OUR SAVIOR’S LUTHERAN CHURCH (9185 Lexington Ave. N., Circle Pines) Monday at 11 AM with visitation one hour prior. Memorials preferred.

Brought my little one cat fishing today in his honor.....thought that was better than running fifty miles wink Makes me sick to my stomach that they never had that opportunity. He truly was one of those guys that was simply a good guy. He will be missed my many. Cancer sucks!

      The far northern reaches of crow wing county.

      What area were you in? Nothing specific, just general area. Like Alexandria or whatever.

      On buck, are their any secrets to know about? Says it's a clear lake, any chance panfish might bite at night?

      It’s not bad! I got it this last fall at a hardware type store with a fishing department. They had the reels priced at $39.99. Plus they were running a 25% off reel sale. So I got it for something like $25. So a $90 reel I walked out for $25. It’s ok worth the $25 but not $90 imo.

      Great report and pics! Looks like a great time. How do you like your Clam Gravity Elite? I really like mine have a couple now and plan to add a few more next year.  Own a couple black betty free falls also but for the buck the Gravity's are the way to go.

      I know a group of us have talked a lot about this recently.   I really like the 10 or 5 depending in the lake.  The 1 over 10" if someone wants a trophy gill.   For crappie regs just look a bit south.

      Well we wrapped up a few days up north. Tried a lake I’ve been to a few times in past but seem to always struggle at getting anything going. It took a lot of miles on the sled and be willing to go out in subzero temps and strong winds but I was able to contact a massive amount of gills. Ended up catching around 300 I figure. Biggest was about 9”- 9 1/2”. A lot of dandies over all. Kept a few meals to hold me over for a while. Next day went back and threw out a tipup with suckers I had left over from a few weeks ago. I literally could not keep the flag down! ( haha what a funny sentence!!) it was not stop flags and fish! I even had one spool me as I running up to it! So much fun. The gills were all in about 14fow but were stacked from bottom up to about 5 ft down. It’s One of the clearest lakes in the state So I was able to sight fish them and let me tell you if your able to sight fish gills its one of the most entertaining things I can think of doing. Even we’re able to put a decent amount of miles on the sleds. The trails up there were the best I’ve seen and were perfect shape for riding.

      Paul, any reports on pike fishing.??? my plan is to come out and chase flags Saturday!!!!!!!!!!

      I would tend to agree, however, the DNR obviously does not see it that way.  They show 267 walleyes died from hooking mortality in the Dec. Jan. period for a total poundage loss of 521lbs. The numbers are simply mind boggling, and amazing.
