Fished the lower lake this evening. Caught crapies in 12-14 FOW. Temp was 46 degrees. Tube jigs were the ticket...

I did not do well on Saturday - Tried lots of warm water, shallow bay type spots - The only place they were getting a few (crappies and bluegills)was up by the hwy 21 bridge, but there were 8 boats and another half dozen guys on shore in that little northwest corner of the bay in there.

was out saturday and sunday in paradise bay. .. tough bite but it seemed like the warmest water in there and the bay over to it. they did turn on a little bit more on sunday. caught about 10 keepers. its tough right now but it should pick up as this warm weather steadies and gets these fish back in a pattern.

Fished Prior today in the bay by the hwy21 bridge. Caught a couple of bull sunnies and a few Crappie. Bite was very slow and short. Water temp was 45.6 in the morning and 49.2 when we left. Better days ahead

Found 56 degree water on the north side. Not tons of fish yet. I think the big fish are still deep

I saw in my local paper on Saturday that the lake level on Prior Lake is up 25" from last December. Seems like an awful lot runoff coming from somewhere.

I would not want to be living on this lake if we had a normal rainfall and snowfall. Can you say wet basement. shocked.gif

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
