The Prior Lake Sportsman Club doesn't have a website as far as I know. I am pretty sure the bait comes from PL Bait & Tackle so they should be able to answer questions or the like. Years past, they would also sell tickets there. Not certain if that is the case this year.

I was in PL bait a couple of days ago and they did have tickets for it.

Not a good day to hold the contest with the Daytona 500 that afternoon also. frown.gif

Not ever gone to a contest before... confused.gif Do they allow you to drive your truck to where you are fishing or is it sleds or buckets to sit on only? So they drill holes for you? How far apart are the holes? Just wondering... I guess I could drive by and take a peek at how they do it.

I was on there last sunday, nice day, caught a couple small perch.

I have not gone in years but in the past you could not drive to your hole so I would plan on walking.

Was anyone there at the contest? I was out there yesterday and caught a handful of sunnies, one perch and a small crappie. I think the winning fish was a 1/2 lb. jumbo perch! I haven't seen one of those in Prior for a long time. Really nice day to be out though. smile.gif

I fished out there after the contest. There was still a some of vehicles parked in the Sand point parking lot when I got there. I drove west after I got on the lake and got away from the crowds. Managed a few perch and a crappie. 1/2 lb perch are considered jumbos? Well I guess they probably are on prior.

      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.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
