Try Madison lake its a 15 minute drive and sometimes you can have some success, if you head north east from Mankato there are quite a few lakes, Duck, West Jefferson,Francis all have decent places fish from shore. If you need directions ill be on tomorrow gl fishing. BT

I like Washington, German...shoot, just look at a map. Wait until this winter bud, if you are an ice angler or want to learn, you have some FANTASTIC lakes around you. Things could be tough from shore now, but you'll have the whole lake in winter.

You might want to try one of the local ponds - the bass are shallow...

Don't forget about the MN River. A lot of opportunity there too.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
