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

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
