River Fishing

6 posts in this topic

I am looking for a good place to river fish(from shore) for walleyes on the days where the wind is too bad for taking out the little boat on lakes. I live in mankato, so if anyone knows anywhere to try on the minnesota, blue earth, or le seuer your advice would be much appreciated. I am not looking for boat fishing spots because i dont feel like losing a lower unit on the river. Thanks everyone.

Without giving any specifics, just look for water inlets, creeks, fresh water springs.

When I lived in Kato I'd hit Sibley park where the Blue Earth and MN River run together. Also try below the Rapidan Dam. There are serveral spots along 169 all including 7 mi park(or is it 9mi?), Kasota, and Ottowa. Plenty of river action to be had in the area. My best advise would be to put in the time at several locations to see where you have the best luck. Good luck and have fun!!

thanks for the info guys. i have tried below rapidan dam and have only caught small channel cats. there is no where there to get away from the really heavy current. i will try looking around for some inlets to fish on the mn river.

Try Land of Memories out by the South Bend Township. Been out there few times this last weekend on the windy days and did manage to catch a few eyes along with some catfish. So it makes it fun.

Go to Sibley or Land of Memories. I have always had good luck. Move around though, some spots are better than others.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
