Prior Lake

9 posts in this topic

Headed out to Prior this afternoon seeking the largemouth. Anyone been out lately? I'm hoping that since we've passed Labor Day the jetskis & large boats will be mostly absent...

I fished the docks and midlake structure a few weeks ago and we had the most action on Senko worms rigged "wacky" style. Also a few bass on shallow cranks. Nothing bigger than 13-14", but the action was fairly consistent. We had the best luck fishing the shaded docks in the morning. Good luck and watch out for the early morning waterskiers!

That's about what we experienced - big fish last night was a 16" bass. But the little guys certainly became active right before that storm rolled in. On the plus side it was a nice day & the lack of big boats steaming by at 50MPH was greatly appreciated!

I think thats the story of that lake. I always catch a lot, and don't usually catch anything with size. I know they're there, but they are just hard to find.

Where is the best spot on that lake to catch fish anyways? I don't want to catch bass either ( no offense ) How about the secret for crappies on there?

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
