      How can you troll in all that much? You sure you don't mean Puckaway?

      is that a serious question? Walleyes have always been in Buffalo since the fish ladder now there is a decent population special way to fish for them though very ...more tricky Lake

  8. trout pattern one long line one board(miniboard)

    Walleye with a sr5

  9. was looking to see if some of you more serious walleye fisherman would like to start a little club before Buffalo Lake.. I have been chasing walleye almost my whole ...more life ...i practice a solid catch and release policy basically same as the slot limits on the Wisconsin River I have seen increased activity and almost doubled from last year on this section I don't think we'll have a problem with a getting fished out due to the weeds and the average fisherman might find it a bit walleyes up here but I believe there is a substantial population right now and it's just going to get better so let's form a club and keep it safe.... my cell phone number is 608-369-1899 and my Gmail if you prefer email is glaser527@gmail .i am off work at 3:30 everyday give me a shout after that time and well talk on how to set this up etc. I think this would benefit this Lake a whole lot for our future Generations and I'm sure the businesses would appreciate some extra income!! tight lines

  10. Fishing for pike, hooked into this hog!!!

    7 lb. 8 oz. 23 in. Largemouth Bass with a Sucker

    1. Ray Bied 0
      Buffalo is terrible with weeds. VERY hard to motor ANYWHERE! Motor sounded overheating alarm 3 times in a 2 hour attempt to fish. Not well managed. Sad. It has ...more been MUCH better in years past. :(

      Patrick, we need more anglers like yourself.
      That's using your head and heart! Great job!

      Ray, this fish was released. I was very careful with it. I don't eat largemouth, especially a fish this big and old. Fairly rare to see them this big this far ...more north on public water. When I do keep fish (usually walleye or pike) I never keep the larger ones, smaller eating size is what I believe you should keep. I considered a mount due to the rarity of this beast but even then I would get a replica. Would never kill it. Especially since I believe this was a pre-spawn female.
