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.

    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
    • So how was everyone’s grouse season this year?    It was tough getting out this year between work and the lousy, cool, wet fall but I did get some birds
