What in the hoot in hollerin has happened to this lake. I haven't fished Big Buff for a while, so I go to Sturgis to launch tonite. Nobody is on the lake or the landing, huh, I thought that was weird. Then I back in, and hit something while backing in. I look in the water and there is a huge burm right in the middle of the launch,about 20' from shore, 2" below the water. What do I not know here? I then go to the North landing, the boat trailer falls off one side, reverse off the trailer and thunk thunk, that friggin rock pile is back. WOW!

All the ramps on Buffalo are really tricky. the washout berms are getting closer to the surface as the water goes down. They will maybe out of the water by oct. if water levels keep falling.

This sounds like getting on Buffalo Lake is getting tricky. Has anybody out there been fishing this lake? What's up with it? Any reports? Bass?

Ole, I was out on Buffalo, all the Largemouth i caught were in deep water. Most of them came on deep diving crankbaits.

The depths of 10 to 14 ft. averaged around 3lb. fish. Do you fish any of the area leagues. I didn't try slow rolling spinner in that deeper water. But I'm sure that could work as well. Good luck.

My Grandson and I are in the West Metro League. Tomorrow is our last night. It's been a great summer and we've met some great new fishing friends as well as being able to hang out with our old ones. You should check us out next year, we might have room for a couple of boats! cool.gif

I picked up a nice 19" smallie last Sunday. The fish were still scattered though. I wonder if the water level has come up with all the rain? I didn't make it out there today.

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
