Prior Lake

May 29, 2016

May 29, 2016

Had grand visions of fishing O’Dowd lake this morning.  Unfortunately, the lake was taken over by a local bass club. No parking available at 5:15 a.m.  Time to improvise.  Time be an optimist.  Off to Prior Lake.  It has been at least a decade since I last fished Prior Lake and those trips had been always been spring crappie fishing trips.

Interesting day weather wise too.  Steady breeze.  Raining one moment.  Clear blue skies the next.  Cloudy.  Clear.  Typical Memorial Day Weekend weather…cool and chance of rain. Surface water temp of 67 degrees everywhere I went.  Prior Lake is one of the more sprawling metro area lakes, yet it lacks the scale of Minnetonka.   Each spot seemed to be about a forty-five second dash away.  There are some good mid-lake humps and assorted structure that I tried but again the spots are small and it doesn’t take long to fish.  I will have to give it a shot again to see if I can break the code as it is within fifteen minutes of home.

As far as fishing goes, the little bass were cooperative.  Caught half a dozen on a spinner bait.  Nothing to really brag about though.
