Usually Rochan sands bay well traveled. Some locals plow with side by side n such. Senic sands usually traveled and accessible. If it's deep I will be out with bobcat tonight. Good fishing!!!!!

Heard a lot of lakes north of Edmonton have too much snow to drive on the lake. Has anyone driven their truck on Buffalo Lake recently? If so, where would you recommend accessing from?

Fishing east of narrows fishing slow today but great weather

Not overkill at all. You have a much better chance of getting large pike than the guy who's seriously undergunned with 20lb flouro.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Spewy on Feb. 1, 2018

100lb is overkill. But when you have a pike take your 20$ crankbait cause he bit through your leader it doesnt seem so

Star Star Star Star Star

by Capper27 on Jan. 31, 2018

I personally think 100lb test is 100% overkill. I use 10-15lb power pro ice teck and then change my leader depending o. Species I'm after. Perch/walleye- 8lb flourcarbon (4ft leader). Lakers 16-20lb flourcarbon (4-6ft leader). Pike tend to be less particular to line but I still use flourcarbon leader 20lb. Tie a swivel to your main line then tie on your leader. On a %u201Chot day%u201D line size/Color will not effect your productiveness but on slow days you would be amazed at the difference a flourcarbon leader can have on results. In fairness Never used 50 or 100lb line so I'm not sure what to say about effectiveness but I do know I always outfish the guy who has cheap mono for line.

Hey thanks for the help guess I'll go out and get some heavier stuff

by Spewy on Jan. 31, 2018

An viynl coated 50lb tip up line on my tip ups. Id rather straighten a hook or have them pull out then have a pike bite through my leader or line. No worse feeling than loosing a picture worthy fish to inadequate tackle

Star Star Star Star Star

by Spewy on Jan. 31, 2018

Terminal tackle is key. I use 100 lb fluro leaders. Good swivels. Mist fish are lost trying to get their head up the hole. I use 50lb braid on my rod and adjust the drag so i dont break my rod. Most people dont catch big fish cause their under gunned. Not cause they cant hook them

Star Star Star Star Star

its the 10lb ice braided line, same as the black stuff just orange but thanks for the tip. think it was getting cut on the bottom of the hole just not use to pike this big yet.

Nothing wrong with 10lb line in my opinion. Lots of factors. Knot tying, drag, weather, leaders, type of line.....

Star Star Star Star Star

by Weeman on Jan. 30, 2018

Hey maybe use your brain and use thick ice line like the black stuff instead of breaking 10lb line on fish, Come on people get the proper equipment before going

Got 6 burbs and 4 keeper pike before lunch sunday

by Capper27 on Jan. 30, 2018

I’ve only fished the lake twice this year but fished the exact same areas you just mentioned. The bay you speak of is full of huts so I imagine people do well there but I didn’t catch anything. We moved out of the bay along the shore towards the island and did really well. Found a transition from 3ft of water to 6ft and set up there. Keep moving around and keep trying. I’m my limited experience you are in an area that produces fish.
