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.

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      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.

      I just signed the petition "Robbinsdale Armstrong High School Athletic Director: Allow Trap/Skeet Participants to Earn a Chenille Letter." and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.

      Our goal is to reach 500 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here:
