Where have all the fisherman gone? This fall there has only been a hand full of guys fishing buffalo lake. We are all waiting for ice, but what will we find if nobody is fishing it now? If anyone has been on buffalo fishing during Nov. let me know. I have found some reasonable fishing. just need to have the ice house heater.

Ronnie, There is some walleyes coming into the shallows after dark on buffalo. The walleyes I have found, are working rocky areas, 3-5 ft of water with minnows.

A couple other areas I have found for shore fishing is along the crow river. Corners have been my best areas, with pike being most active. Still looking for the corner holding walleyes.

hello jigginjim thanks for the great info I am going to give it a try tonight. I tried the south end a couple of times last week by the landing. Got a couple of bites but they were realy light. Just wondering if you bobber fishing or just jiggin? I couldn't tell you if they were walleyes that were biting, because i never saw them. Was ther any decent size to the ones you caught? thank in advance for any further info smile.gif

ronnie, I have tried both jiggin and bobber fishing. Lately bobber fishing the shorelines, has only given up small walleyes. (13in. max) Jiggin had produced better before the lake temp. dropped below 39 degrees. After that the walleyes haven't been willing to chase baits down.

Buffalo lake is about had it, until we get ice or, weather that will allow boat travel.

Temps are producing 1/2 inch of ice per night the last few nights. This according to the DNR. The ice (and lack thereof) is still very unsafe.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
