Good panfish lake near Mankato

5 posts in this topic

I would like to take my 5 year old out to a lake that has some action to keep his interest. Any suggestions?

West end of Francis, the "point" out to the left from the landing on Duck, or anywhere near the outside weed line on Rhoemhildts, if you are walking. If you have an ATV I would try the west end or north side of Bakers Bay on Washington. Otherwise walking out from the North landing on Washington and angling a bit to the right in that bay you should be able to find some pannie action in about 8 fow. Good Luck. I'm sure there are probably better areas than what I just posted, but those are old stand-by's that come to mind. One that a lot of people over look that is right in Kato is Hiniker Pond. There are some nice pan fish in there. Good spot for families with young kids and elderly folks.

Washington south of St peter almost always is willing to cough up some sunnies and crappies just out from Westwood Bar & grill in Mud bay. This is where the public access is on the west side of the lake and they also have bait for sale or at least did last summer and winter.

Washington would be my pick.

philup,

Welcome to FM!

I would recommend the East end of Frances, right out in front of the townhomes/condos in 7 - 12' of water.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
