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.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
