Nicely done sir! Those are beautiful fish. I second the notion about the accesses getting beat up with the warm weather. Wouldn't be the first time I have watched people trying to get on or off the ice and having to cross open water to get there!

Does anyone know if the area bait shops are done with shiner minnows for the rest of the ice season? My buddy and I stopped at three different places including Prior Lake Bait and Tackle and were told the same thing: sold out and won't be getting any more. Curious if we can still get them somewhere close. Thanks.

My buddy and I were out on Prior on Sat. Found 8-10" of clear ice in most spots with 2-4" of frozen slush on top. Tons of people out there with 1/2 ton trucks and permanent ice houses driving around. Couldn't believe the traffic. Counted 4 vehicles around one ice shack. Ice was cracking all day. Managed some nice bass and pike on tip-ups and roughly a dozen panfish.

Looking for info on ice thickness/conditions on Lower Prior. Is the main lake frozen? Also, which is the better bet to go out from; Sand Point or the sportsmans access? Thanks in advance for any info.

My buddy and I started out with Clam Pro's. Completely decked out with the Traplink feature. They work great for early ice because of the sled. Plus, as others have pointed out, they hold all of your gear. Then we bought an Eskimo 949i hub. Great value, weight and setup. We wound up selling it last year and upgraded to an Otter XTH Resort hub shelter. Best thing we ever did. Tons of room, not too heavy and easy set up even on windy days. It comes with all the ice anchors you need. We also came up with a tie down system for it on very windy days. Added LED lights, coat hangers and a couple rattle reel setups as well. Works great. Even used it once on a tailgate trip to Lambeau Field. We only use one buddy heater. I would highly recommend it for someone who has a group of people that are on the ice all day. We even bring a 12 volt coffee pot! Once again, it boils down to price tag and what the application is. Good luck to everyone going out this weekend.

Very possible that you saw a sturgeon. The Wolf River chain connects to Lake Winnebago which is where we spear every year. My buddy and I were in Appleton last week and the Wolf is so badly flooded that it is almost impossible to launch. Only saw one small boat on Sat. Peoples cabins and homes are flooded out as well. At this time of year, you will start seeing white bass as well. Can't wait for open water!

Well, my buddy and managed to get out Sat. afternoon. We were relegated to walking as both the sportman's access and Sand point beach had standing water roughly 10 to 15 feet off shore. Everyone we saw was walking except for one crew cab truck that came all the way from the far side of the lake pushing slush and water the entire way. I think he bottomed out the truck getting off the lake. Didn't catch a thing, but it was still nice to be out. Still 3+ feet of ice but with warm weather coming, the ice is going to take a beating.

I've tried a lot of different whisky/whiskey's, but my choice is either Seagrams VO Gold for mixed drinks or, for a really good sipping whisky, my go to has always been Crown Royal. Whether it's in the original purple bag or the high end XR, super smooth and tastes great. One of my co-workers gave me a bottle of Brother Justus out of Minneapolis. Hints of butterscotch, vanilla and almond. No bite and super smooth. I am also partial to Jameson as I got introduced to that at the distillery in Ireland. Either way, you can't go wrong.
