Waconia or Prior?

8 posts in this topic

I just started spearing a little earlier this month, and I've only been out a few times. Still haven't got a fish, but I'm hoping to change that soon. Here's the question, I've got President's Day off from work and I'm wondering if I should spear Waconia or Prior? Any other lakes I should consider? I'm hoping to stay within about an hour of the Cities. Thanks in advance.

Since you're on the West side of town, you might want to try Long Lk near Minnestra (sp?). There's directions in the Get-together thread. Good luck.

Waconia is a nice lake, but you have to watch out for muskies. Check out christmas lake. Very clear lake and has some nice fish in it!

Fish Lake by Lydia very dirty we just had our sportsmen club contest on there on sunday, the ice is red since the lake is so murky they said it has a stink to the water earlier. I was on minnewashta last weekend in Chan super clear but not keeps seen 1 pike and some bass but slow, no pannies or anything. Waconia is usally clear, speared that a bunch of times never ran into any ski's, nice lake but usally busy. Prior upper is usally very dirty, I have had much cleaner water on the lower. One year it was scary clear and never seen a fish I think we didn't have enough snow cover to make them comfortable.

I dont think theres musky in there, but when i have been out there in the summer delievering boats, the water out there was so dirty, green and dark, that i dont know how a guy would be able to see there!

Maybe its way different in the winter time, im not sure i have never been out there on the hard water!

Prior doesn't have muskie's that I know of. The Upper prior by spring is usually very dirty, but the lower by like candy cove is usually fairly clean. Well good luck to everyone heading out this weekend
