Buffalo Bay

Recommended Posts

Went up to buffalo yesterday and cought some nice walleyes, biggest being around 7 pounds or so smallest about 2.5 lbs. Every time I have go up there and done well but this time was a faster bite with bigger fish. Normally we use live bait but this time we were running late and bought bait at the local store and they "packed it for canada", which consists of dumping a can of coke and the minnows into a ziploc sandwich bag, and kills them instantly. I'm assuming it was just a good day, but my buddy that was with says its the coke..... lol

Anyway, this was the first time I fished two people in my new Otter Magnum, and it was very roomy. I am very happy with it.

Pictures always help..... this one was 22 inches. You are allowed one fish over 21 inches and being this was the smallest one we cought, I kept it. (except for a couple of perch here and there) I used those 1/4 oz pink northland rattle jig seemed to drive them nuts.

just to let you know; Walleye from 19.5 to 28in. must be immediately released. Only one walleye over 28in may be kept

Just trying to expand my horizons here, I usually fish in the Lakeville area or in Wisconsin. Where is Buffalo Bay?

Not to try to correct you but Buffalo Bay is located in the Manitoba, Canada region of Lake of the Woods and the slot size you refer to doesn't apply. One fish over 55cm may be kept per licensed angler and limits are 4 or 6 depending on what license you buy.

yes you are probably correct about the slot size for the canadian size, i was thinking he was fishing on the south point of buffalo on the U.S. size which i referred to.

No, I fish Manitoba, The south tip dosen't provide the bite that the bay does.

    • I think Parise has been great this year, like his old self,  one of the few bright spots during a slow start. Liking Greenway more and more, he isn't producing yet but he looked good last night, really starting to use his size out there. Need to see more out of Coyle and Nino. 
    • I still run my fl8 that I bought in 1996. I don’t need zoom and I have watched many friends with the new fancy locators not see fish under the ice. Not me I catch em. No stinking updates for my fl 8 and my fl 8 has fallen down the stairs more times then me. It still runs I had new brushes put in after I fell on it and smashed the casing. O yeah i fished all day with the smashed casing let’s see the new units do that. It’s fixedand runs perfect. Never notice the noise you guys are talking about as I am to busy catching fish!
    • Does that come with ear plugs to drown out all the noise?
    • Since there isn't a lot of covering ground I just don't need the last 30 seconds on a graph or a GPS map to know I've been sitting in the same spot for the last hour.  My phone is always on me when I need to move and I run navionics.  Half the year I'm in my truck when I'm on the move anyway.  If I'm on a dogsled in the bwca I have a handheld.   I'll stick to the flasher.   I upgraded to a bigger screen with the bird, but I just dont need a ton of features that really only make sense on a moving boat.   Just my two cents.
    • Graphs are nice for fishing in a boat for sure.  They show you the nice big history picture of what has already gone by and gives you a good view of what the changing bottom depths look like as you float around.  Really though, when your fishing in a little hole over the same bottom for an hour or all day. What’s the point?  The important part of a graph for ice fishing is that ¼” or so of edge on the far right and what is happening on it real time.  Which then, is just like a Flasher only giving you real time info and why I went back to one from my graph.   Worley Worley!  😉  
    • Good luck on your hunt, let us know how you do!
    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
