7 Mile Creek (mankato area) Question??

Recommended Posts

Last week I fished this spot near a creek inlet and had ZERO luck. It looked like a good spot with current, log jams ect. Has anyone had any luck fishing this area? I'm thinking of fishing it again and moving further South near the rocks.

Haven't shore fished that area since they started to close it at night. Used to be a nice place to fish when you were able to be their after dark.

You didn't have any luck because you were fishing a shallow sandbar. Where the creek goes in it's only a couple feet deep until half way in the middle of the river then it drops off. You can fish the rocks closer to 169 but you will get snagged more often than not.

Thanks for the info guys. Actually, the DNR stopped by to say hi while I was there and said to keep fishing and he would leave me alone as long as I wasn't causing any trouble. Really nice guy, forgot to get his name.

Not trying to seek out your honey holes, but are there any other shore fishing spots near mankato that would ward visiting? Again, I'm not trying to steal your personal fishing hole, but a place to go and have more than a 20% chance of catching some cats...big or small. Something is better than nothing at all.

Thanks again guys for the help!

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
