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

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
