prior lake

Recommended Posts

I am new to the forum and i have lived around prior lake for 15 years and this year decided to start ice fishing locally. I have been out on prior at least 10 times this year last the couple of weeks out by the winter access but this last week i have not been out much and the fishing was slowing down in that area the last couple of times I had been out. I was wondering how the fishing has been lately and where people go as the winter progresses because i have heard people move down the lake. I was also wondering if there are any other lakes in the area that i could get good action with panfish. I am not looking for action with tiny fish though.

this is a great forum with good information thanks to all

Prior Lake = ZOO. Is it really necessary for everybody to drive 30 mph on the ice?

So whats up with the red gunk on fish lake is it toxic or what and where did it come from i would want to know a little more about the red gunk before i fish it. Lake sounds good but sounds really nasty.

Could it be the insane amount of traffic...?

I spent a couple hours running around on the snowmobile checking in with several groups of fisherman yesterday. I saw a couple small pike caught off of rocky points on tip-ups. Most of the anglers I talked to were after panfish and the results were not very encouraging. It definately seemed that the fisherman that were out of the traffic lanes and busy areas were doing significantly better than those hanging out in the high population areas.

      This morning I found a solution. I had an old pair of cross country skis that I haven't used in 25 years. I got some 1" PVC pipe and made a frame and fastened it to the skis similar to the Smitty Sled design. Took about 1-1/2 hours to make it. Tried it out this afternoon and it worked great.

      Paul, have you heard of any depths that have been working lately?

      I sure hope you have a fantastic trip!  Never done Trout myself in all the times I’ve been in the area.   I don’t want to sound like a Debbie Downer but have you heard anything about snow and slush conditions on Trout?  Hopefully it’s not as bad as the Big V reports but they are neighbors.

      Ummm...hmmmmm... Minnesota offensive lineman Daniel Faalele is still learning football, but at 6'9" and 400 pounds...he's not undersized. If he is, I like that kind on the Gophers line.   Maybe PJ just likes over-achievers with a big motor because they can relate? Ya think!!! 🙂😁😎💜💛💜

      PJ Fleck was an undersized, over-achiever with a big motor. I think that he looks for the guys with the same qualities because they can relate.
    • SkunkedAgain
      Yup, it looks like my ATV is staying home until later this winter when everything settles down and I can get it back across the ice! Thanks for the reports everyone. You're making me wish for better lake access (and a snowmobile!).   Stay safe
