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.

      Planning on bringing out the new boat this weekend, I will do my best at the launch to speed up process, but hopefully some slack is cut on account it is a new boat..brand new boat.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
