It's hard to pick just one but Prior, Carls, and O'dowd are on the top of my list. They all have some excellent fishing if you know were to go and what to fish with.

I've fished Prior and really like it as well,O'dowd is one I have not tried yet. One top lake for me is Medicine lake.

O'dowds has some excellent winter walleye fishing if you can find them. Pannies and crappies are alittle on the small side from what I've caught. Was considering puting my house out there this year. I'm looking at Prior (north end) out by the twin islands and Carls lake to (Just don't Know yet)

Prior is one of my favs, but will be spending some time hoping for a flag on BE, as well as my fav might change to where ever the fish are biting when I'm fishing.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
