I always see alot of people fishing near the Hwy 99 bridge on the river in town there.

Welcome to FM my man! As PDOGG said, the Hwy. 99 bridge is good and will only get better. That area, in November, is tough to beat. A couple other nice MN River options would be the Land of Memories Park down towards Mankato as well as 7 Mile Creek. For lake fishing you'd have to drive a bit but Madison Lake has some shore fishing opportunities as does Elysian, Tetonka, Sakatah and a host of others.

Hey welcome to the board! I go to school at MSU just down the road from you. I head over to Madison Lake a few days a week (went last night) and shore fish. I am thinking about heading out later tonight, leaving Kato around 5-515. Company is always welcome, my name is Mike and you can reach me at (480) 824-8960. Hope to see you out there!

Hey team otter, i might be heading down to Sakatah state park this weekend for a camping trip and i was wondering how you would recommend fishing for the walleyes this time of year? I would think we would be fishing from shore on Sakatah unless we rent a conoe. I dont do much walleye fishing and i have never fished this lake. I dont plan on keeping anything. Anybody feel free to chime in if you have any reports!

Beetle spins and minnows, slip bobber and minnow, shallow Shad Raps, Husky Jerks or Rat-L-Traps.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
