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!

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
