Bass on Prior

6 posts in this topic

I've not had a good season for bass this year on Prior. What's the deal? Other years I have never had a problem, but this year is very slow for me. I'm I the only one (be honest).

The boys and I haven't been able to get on to prior lake yet this summer. I have never caught them when i was trying for them, so I will be watching with interest.

Since there has been no more replies, I guess the fish are gone.

I wish I could help with current reports, but I haven't been out there at all this year like I usually have been in years past. Right now I'd day your best bet would be deep in the lower(northern) lake anywhere theres rock. In the upper(southern) lake you can always bet on a few fish around docks and rock piles, shallow or deep. On the docks you will get a lot of smaller fish but may run into a couple nice ones. I've caught my biggest bass on prior fishing docks in the southern lake. Jigs, t-rigged plastics, senkos, and whatever else you think of should produce a couple fish. Hope this helps.

I will have to agree although I have only been out there twice. They are in there you just have to look a little harder. The docks are a great spot in very early and very late periods. But now that summer has taken a stanglehold of us I would move deeper. Look for points and structure that have deep water close to it. As the sun comes up higher in the sky you will want to move down the break to deeper water. There is a lot of hiding spots for them so be patient. Good luck and let us know if you find them.

If you're out there on a calm morning or evening, try buzz baits on the surface in 8 FOW or less in weedy areas. You will get plenty of hits, but they may run smaller. I use chartruse. Fun way to fish.

      You can use the clam plate with the k-drill, they make an adapter. The K-drill recommends a minimum of 725 or 750 for torque, so you almost have to get the higher end drills. The newer Clam has the gear box which will double your torque with a 2:1 gear ratio. You can pick up the conversion box for $70. They had a deal on those at the show last weekend, as well as the K-drill. The K-drill cuts through the ice like butter, if you get the clam plate and conversion box, you should be able to still get double the torque then. So Clam plate $70, plus the Clam conversion box ($70), and add in the K-drill ($215), and I already have a drill. Brings the total up to $355. But don't have to purchase gas or propane or, light weight, no fumes. I will let everyone know how it works out.
