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!

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
