Shore Fishing

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any advice for someone without a boat. I have been to every lake from St. James to Faribault this year and have very little luck other than crappies in spring. If anyone has any advice or any info on good spots to try I would appreciate it.

Try the I-35 bridge just upstream of the kingmill dam. A perch colored shad rap either #5 or #7 will often hook a few eyes. If not, than night fish with a lindy-rig and leach. wink.gif Only prob. is if your not from the area it may be hard to find the road.

There are nice opportunities for catching fish from shore where the Blue Earth River dumps into the MN River. Heck, even along the MN River between Le Sueur and Mankato can be good.

The MN side is typically the strongest area for action. Certainly you will have to sort through some rough fish but the 'eyes are there too. Lindy Rigs and creek chubs is a safe bet as is pitchin' large plastics. Focus on the areas with down timber or anything else that may serve as a current break for the fish to take a rest out of the moving water and eat.

I have fished area's like rocks, sand bars and creek mouths with jigs and plastics towards evening with some luck. If you see a rocky ledge along the river bank that would also be a good area to try. Another hint, watch for the baitfish surfacing and jumping in these areas.

Does anyone know of any public gravel pits along highway 90?...my buddy read somewhere that people were catching some decent fish.

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
