Anyone know of lakes with decent shore fishing near Mankato? I've gone to North Shore on Madison Lake but can't find any shore on other lakes near by. Any suggestions?

lake Crystal, and the lake close to that one, plus the rivers there are great fishing.....

Sibley park, Land of Memories park, Minneopa State park Seven Mile creek all on the Minnesota River, in or near Mankato, but you did ask about lakes not rivers. Duck lake has a county park. Bray Park on Madison Lake.

Struggled with the same thing on lakes around mankato. A bit of a drive but lake Hanska by new ulm has good access. Mostly do river fishing because of this.

Rapidan dam park is very scenic with plenty of shore line for fishing also has a camp ground. Tough to believe you are in farm country while in lime stone, tree lined valley. Stepping into the Dam Store is a step back in time along with great pies! well worth a drive.

I was just fishing Madison lake, near St. Peter,  caught several nice sunfish ( approx 7 to 8 inch)  along with bass and pike in shallow water.  All in less than 4 ft of water.

      Went to go panfishing and found myself in a bass feeding frenzy in the weeds. It is crazy to see how slow these big bass inhale the bait in the winter. First fish probably pushed 5lbs. Too much fun on light gear!

      Rumor has it a walleye that "likely" tipped the scales near 15 lbs was caught on a lake near Mille Lacs. From what I read, the fish was weighed the day after it was caught at 14.186 lbs and lost a couple ounces just in the time it was at the bait shop being weighed.

      He passed yesterday at the age of 87.  Sad to hear.  I looked at some articles but didn’t the cause.  He was one person in the industry I would’ve enjoyed getting a chance to chat with for a while.

      Has anyone been out to big swan recently? Curious how the ice is and if there are spots to avoid as I’ve not fished this lake before. Looking to target cats as my other lakes have been lacking this year. Don’t need other people’s spots just ice conditions. Would like to bring out my 3/4 ton and 17’ IC if possible.

      Hey guys! First post so excuse me if I'm posting in the wrong spot. 
       
      I just moved to Elk River, MN and am feening for some fish. I have no idea where to go first but do any of you know any decent spots to get some Crappie or Walleye within a 45 min drive from Elk River? Any spots are greatly appreciated. 
       
      Thanks!!!!
