Recommended Posts

I am planning on fishing a couple Lakes in the Mankato Area this weekend, wondering if anyone would recommend a good area bait shop. Thanks

I will have to check that out next time the shiners dissappear. I like the Madison Lake shop and the Bobber shop. Gander and Scheels are OK but who wants to carry the bucket all the way through the retail store there? Poor planning IMO

If you want good bait and have a plan then go to the bobber shop for the quick stop, if you need local lake info the Madison lake store is full of easy going friendly employees that are always more than willing to shoot the [PoorWordUsage] for a while.

I stopped at Walt's this morning for the first time. Very impressed. Got the standard amount of bait and a pop for the road and Walt gave me a card for what will eventually be free minnows. I'll definitely be back.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Just west of shantytown. 😉😁

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂
    • leech~~
      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
