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!

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      fished a different spot today and it was strange, I was using crawlers and a lot of eyes bit and only 1 sucker.  guy next to me was using earthworms and he caught a lot of suckers and 1 eye.  twilight zone ! !  LOL  I just use a slpit shot most of the time.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.
