Any one had any luck on Prior or Spring lately. I am planning on hitting the water this weekend, but not sure which lake to go to. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

I have been having good luck on prior, Been ok with water levels, taking it kind of slow with the speed. Good luck getting a spot at the launch though.

just remember,the early bird catches the worm..then he gives it to me,and i put it on a jig like a tube bait and i get sunpikes and crappulations.that is if you want a parkin spot,get there early enuf,altho the winds and rain may deter some anglists this weekend.and seriosly,try crawler chunks on jighead(i prefer chartuese)run them up the hook and snag the piece on the keeper part of the jighead.i go as far as finding heads with a pronounced keeper and file it a bit so its less of a nub and more of a point.you don't need any crawler extending past the bend really,and can spin the chunk around for better grip after a bite or two and use the same piece a few fishes worth.or reverse the chunk for fresh flesh to snag it.if it's not sitting right,like a tube bait,and it rides down the hook,you're basically wasting your time,so if you get bit and don't hook up,reel in and rehook.craps and suns love it.and remember,sharp hooks catch mo' flishes..and look for the warmest water....

Just got off of Prior. Found some nicer fish. 10-12 sunnies 9" long and a bunch of crappies 10" long. There still in there. Nice to see some decent pannies coming around. No live bait, jigheads, tubes, and twisters worked nice and slow. Good luck this weekend. Might be out if the weather cooperates.

      Was it only those two people out there today?

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
