rapadan (below the dam) is my first choice, this strech of the blue earth river flows north to mankato where it joins the minnesota river. The dam near rapadan has a great campground/fishing areas that is state owned it was $10 a night per tent last year.I think there is something like 23 campsites to choose from ive never seen more than 10 campsites taken and the entire area is secluded within the river vally/rock bluffs. Ther are huge flathead catfish there as well as walleyes,pike, and channel cats.Im thinking of going there for opener.Make sure to get there before 9pm because the gate gets locked and its close to a mile hike from the gate if its locked.

Is the Blue Earth River heavily polluted? Are there any places to shore fish for walleyes on the Minnesota that you know about?

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
