From New Ulm upstream to Highway 4 is a great stretch, lots of nice deep holes, big bends and tons of cricks flowing in. Heading downstream of New Ulm it starts to get wider, narrower and shallower, especially past the Cottonwood river. I do not believe there is any dam in the area, I know alot of people run snowmobiles in the winter over that stretch.

Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story....

Do you guys know if the open water sections of the river are fishable at this time of the year. I am mostly interested in Catfish and Carp but not sure if it's worthwhile or not. I am definitely not gunna ice fish on the river though.

I've tried a couple times over the years. Not much luck, actually no luck at all.
But... doesn't mean that you can't get some action. If the weather is warm and you have a spot thats open.... as they say from the cheap seats....."GO FOR IT"

--------------------------------------------------------
There's a reason its called fishing.

If anyone wants to catch some carp, just go about 50 yards up into the Chaska creek and fish with corn on the bottom. Its a bite a cast, but they are hard to hook.....

Carpfisher, was this today? I tried it on sunday at the creek mouth and i couldn't even manage a bite. Any bigguns?

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.

No, I was there on Sunday. I actually think I may have talked to you in the parking lot...I had that black Toyota...I think you were driving a red chevy? Nope, no big ones, but they were biting pretty actively....

nope wasn't me, i did see some other younger kids fishing down there though. I was driving the silver chevy. We left there after an hour because we werent having any luck so we went to carver. Im really busy now because of baseball, but i might be able to sneak down this weekend.

Oops my bad. Yeah when I was there on Sunday there were carp up in the creek. I couldn't see them but I kept bumping fish with my jig. I put on some corn and I would get a bite about every 5 minutes or so...but they were biting pretty short and difficult to hook. Good luck if you go down there.

You can find big Carp just about anywhere on the Minnesota River in Mankato. Caught many in the 10-15 lb. range last year.

Is corn the bait of choice when looking for carp? I usually throw crawlers in hopes of getting channels too but if corn is better I would like to know.

I have always had good luck with corn but I like to spread out on a cookie sheet and put it in the over for a few minutes to dry it out a little, makes it stay on the hook better.

Shut up and fish

You don't want to bake it but just enough to make it tough also try adding a little vanilla extract to it before putting it in the over adds a nice sweet scent to it and a great snack if the fish are not biting

Shut up and fish

That or lay some out on a rock in the sun while fishing. That hardens it up also.

So carp will still readily take oatmeal this early? I'm going to the cannon in a couple weeks for the silver bass run...usually super thick with carp below the morristown dam, some as big as 20 pounds. Have snagged a few unintentionally, but never been able to land them. They'd be fun to catch.

I'll tell ya what a 20lb carp will give you a great work out. I got one last year that went close to 30lb and it was like a freight train in the river, took a good 30 minutes to land that one.

Do you guys think the carp are still up in the creeks with these cold temps or do you guys think they have moved back into the main channel? Thinkin about givin it a try today.

It starting to get really high. I was up on the hill this morning and it looked like it was up close to the banks. It looked a lot higher than last weekend and last weekend was about normal.
