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.

Took the kids to the contest, What do ya know, we were the ones that caught that JUMBO PERCH (.5), took 1st place, it was really fun for the kids, and put an extra 75.00 in the fishing gear fund.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
