Prior has been ok for pannies and crappies. You might want to give candy cove a try on the lower side. As for upper prior you can try the holes around the twin island area for some crappies and walleyes. Spring lake either one of the points are producing a few walleyes and some crappies. I have picked up a few larger crappies out in the middle of the lake in 30-35' about 10-15' off the bottom. You have to keep moving once you find the fish out there in the middle of the lake if you want keep on them.

I havent done to much out of prior but it you go to sand point and look out to the left there is a city on the ice out there if you go about 40 feet away from them you should do fine. If not take a drive up to black lake on tonka there are plenty of fish there fishing13

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
