First time on Buffalo = Success


Recommended Posts

Just got home from Buffalo, fished off the courthouse, alot of guys out and moving, I sat quietly and caught 23 nice crappies and 2 northerns that ran 4-5 pounds, after 4 action was pretty constant till I left, marked alot of fish bite was light but there were definetly some agressive crappies biggest was a touch over 11 inches, minnow heads worked the best, fished in 25 feet of water. Good luck guys

I started packing up around 6. They started filtering in at 4 but by 5 it was on, so basically 2 pretty good hours of action. No complaints here.

Way to go iceguy75...
...you sat quietly and patiently, and that must have been the key...there's been so much noise there (around the Courthouse area) when all them houses were there, plus the atv's and sleds running...glad to hear they're moving on. I stopped going there 2 weekends ago because of all the commotion...

Man! Went to Buffalo today...what a ZOO!
Set up just outside of the area known as "The Courthouse"...what a joke! There were probably 50 houses on that spot and people driving their cars fast. Still too much commotion. I was thinking it would be quieter...maybe people at work today, but no such luck. Well, gotta go to bed...I'm on-call for work tonight...hoping they don't call!

Yea, that court house area is just a party zone until the kids are back at school. We set up out there New Year's Day and spent the night. Trucks, augers, and generators running through the night. Some guys setup right outside our house and ran a generator directly on the ice all night long. We could see the vibrations from it in our holes. Thanks pal!

Needless to say, fishing was bad.

Talk about traffic how about the cars and trucks that can drive anywhere on the lake but they choose to drive between two houses that are no more then 10 feet apart. I was there today trying for Crappies and ending up with Northerns.. Boy I hate those things. We ahd two portables and we ended up having about 5 vehicles drive between us and another house ten feet away just for no reason at all I think these people think it is cute til someone get's hurt... shocked.gif

Has the courthouse area slowed down? I have been out in that area for 3 weeks and only 10 houses were in the area in a few weeks ago. I had to leave on 1/1/04 in anger. I say, when someone gets within 25 feet of an existing house you have every right to push their house it to shore with them in it!

Well, Leinenkugels, I hear you but...you can't, however, "no person may erect a fish house/shelter/dark house within 10 feet of an existing fish house/shelter /dark house", according to the MN Fishing Regs...

...if I remember correctly, MN Boating Regs don't allow another to pass any closer than 50' or between you and a shoreline, so why wouldn't that apply to any motorized vehicle (cars/trucks, snowmobiles, ATV's, boats, jetskis, etc.) and on on ice too?

...and I'm gonna start posting a "no-wake zone" sign around my portable! (the speeds some of these people drive on ice, and the ice is barely a foot thick!) That's what they say caused those 10 trucks to fall in at Buffalo Lake a few weeks ago...a wave hit shore and broke ice from a car going to fast...

      I’ve only seen teal one morning on the river.  Absolutely nothing in all the evenings I’ve been out.  Hard to get excited about hunting around home. 😒

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples

      The essay for international exams such as SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS does not require literary talent, but rather a mastery of the technology of its writing.   Almost any international test for admission to a foreign university contains a section devoted to writing an essay. Is homework market legit? There is a general approach to essay writing for standardized tests, which includes five main steps.   DETERMINING THE TYPE OF ESSAY First, you need to determine what type of essay you are required to write. Standardized tests more often ask you to write a "problem essay," when you need to present an opinion on a given problem, and an "argumentative essay," when you need to analyze the arguments presented against or in defense of a particular point of view.   DETERMINING THE LENGTH OF AN ESSAY The length of the text affects the complexity of the essay, the number of paragraphs. A basic three-paragraph essay consists of 300-500 words. It is referred to as a "short" essay in standardized tests. A "long" essay is a minimum of 500-800 words and consists of five paragraphs.   Each paragraph should contain at least three sentences. It is important to understand that it is not the length of the typed text that is assessed, but the structure and content of the essay.   FORMULATION OF THE MAIN IDEA, THESIS AND ARGUMENTS The main idea is what the essay is about. The thesis is what the author thinks about the main idea of the essay. Arguments are logical statements in support of the author's thesis. Each of these elements should consist of at least one sentence.   If you put these elements in order, you will get an introduction. You can use the wording from the text of the assignment as the main idea.   If the text of the assignment is formulated as a question, in most cases, the thesis should be formulated as an answer to the question posed.   STATEMENT OF THE MAIN BODY OF THE ESSAY In an essay of up to three thousand words, one paragraph each is allocated for the introduction and conclusion. The rest of the essay consists of the main body. For example, in an essay of five paragraphs, the main part should consist of three paragraphs, i.e. one paragraph for each argument.   In a three-paragraph essay, only one paragraph remains to present all three arguments, which makes it even more difficult to write. After a brief outline of the main body, one introductory sentence should be written for each paragraph.     The introductory sentences tell the reader what the paragraph is about. This is followed by arguments that justify the essence of the introductory sentence and examples (a quote or a life case). The introductory sentence, argument, and example together make up one paragraph in the main body.   Since the arguments have already been presented in the introduction, there is no need to use semantic transitions in the main body - all that remains is to set them out in the order in which they are presented in the introduction.   CONCLUSION The conclusion is usually the most difficult part of the essay. The conclusion should include a paraphrase of the thesis in light of what was said in the main body, i.e., an explanation of how the arguments support the thesis put forward, and a final sentence that draws a line under the main idea of the essay.   The clearer and more definite the thesis statement is, the easier it is to write the conclusion. Difficulties in writing the conclusion means that most likely the thesis statement is too unclear. In this case, you can try to rewrite the introduction and then go back to the conclusion.   GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS The main recommendation for writing essays for standardized tests is to quickly sketch out an initial version of the essay. If you run out of time, at least you will have a finished, albeit imperfect, product.   In any case, a finished essay is always graded higher than an unfinished one. If you have some time left, however, you can easily improve the essay with small changes.   Resources: How to write an essay What are essays Essay structure, writing style. What is an essay?

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.
