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

      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
