How Is Prior Lake

Recommended Posts

jonesy21

Just wondering if anyone knows how the bite has been on Prior? Are there any hotspots? And what are the best times?

I've been out on Prior quite a bit. Straight out of Sportsman's access anywhere in about 20' ft, of water. Been finding crappies 9ft. off the bottom. I wasn't really marking them on the vex but just dropped it down and jigged a little. Brought them in pretty fierce. That was on Fri. night.

There was 11-12" out there on Sat morninng. Most guys were talking 14" but i couldn't get any more than 12" onteh tape measure.

The bite has been decent, not great from 5-7am.

I fished the same area on Saturday morning and measured about 13" straight out on Sportsmans. I'm sure it makes a 1" to 2" difference if you are on a spot that has snow cover, or if you are on the bare ice. We were on a bare spot. The fishing was pretty slow. The fish we picked up were biting SUPER light. You could barely see them pick it up on the spring bobber.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.

      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches.

      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
