The Prior lake Association and Co-Sponsor Prior Lake Savage Optimists hosted their annual Family Fishing Tournament Sunday August 7th at Charlies on Prior.  We would like to thank Mill’s Fleet Farm, Prior Lake Bait & Tackle, Walmart and eXtream Bass for their support in making this a fun outing for the entire family.

This year’s trophy winners were:

  • For Sunfish, 1st place went to Hannah Schoufele, 2nd place to Harrison Brown and 3rd place to Justin Graf.
  • For Bass, 1st place went to Charlie Coffman, 2nd place to Lucas Greenfield and 3rd to Sophie Coffman.
  • For Crappie, 1st place went to Reese Guggemos, 2nd place to Harrison Brown, and 3rd place to Issabella Andrus.
  • For Northern, 1st place went to Lucas Greenfield and 2nd place to Jeff Comp.
  • For the Open class, 1st place was a tie with Jake Faust and Tyler Myser each with an identical weight Perch.

Every summer, the Prior Lake Association hosts a family fishing contest on the Sunday following Lakefront Days. It is a great event for all ages, many families participate. Cost is minimal and there are cash prizes and trophies awarded for the top 3 fish by weight in all categories. All child participants will also win a door prize.

It is usually held at Charlies on Prior.  Watch this site and the Prior Lake Association Facebook page for next years details for registration and weigh-in times.
