New to S. Metro...Bad Ice Areas??? (Prior, Spring, Orchard)

2 posts in this topic

I'm somewhat new to the south metro (moved to B-ville 4 months ago). I grew up in Northfield and spent the last few years out in Mound so I know the area but I don't know the lakes very well. I'm mainly wondering if there are any of these lakes (Prior, Spring, Orchard) that have typical bad spots. For example Spring Lake has a spring somewhere in the middle doesn't it? I also thought there was an area on Prior that doesn't normally freeze over very well. I realize I need to check the ice myself but if there are some specific areas to avoid it would be helpful.

Also...if there are any other suggested lakes in the area I'm all ears. I generally target walleyes but I like hooking into a school of crappies as well.

Thanks!!

Matt

Prior Lake has many bad spot Reeds island area have seen may cars and trucks go down there even with 12-18" of ice and the island straight out from the sportsman access you must take caution off of the points all year.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.
