7 Mile Creek (mankato area) Question??

9 posts in this topic

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!
