I plan on heading out after work today at around 7pm. Just looking for a spot Near Hudson or Stillwater to throw out a line from shore and not get into trouble for parking. By that I mean most of the parks have a 1/2 hour after sunset parking rule and I plan on being out until around 12-1. So any spots to park that aren't in a county park so I don't have to worry about getting kicked out. Thanks in advance.

Try the mouth of Lake Mallalieu. This is the the water with the bridge between Hudson and North Hudson. Take a left towards the river just north of this bridge. Park by the railroad tracks. Fish below the dam...

I don't have a Wisconsin fishing liscense to fish the Hudson side and just thought about that. I should've thought about it before posting "Hudson Area". I was thinking more about on the Minnesota side. If I get a Wisconsin Liscense, I'll give that area a shot. Thanks for the info.

If you look at the regulations, I believe that you can fish from either shore since it is a border water. I fish at the Mallelieu outlet often and I don't have a WI license. It can be a very productive spot at times.

Can anybody back this up? It sounds right and I kind of thought the same thing, but don't feel like getting into any trouble. frown.gif

As long as you are not fishing Lake Mallileau you are ok. There is a sign on the trees surrounding the WI inland lake that states you need a WI license to fish on the lake. So make sure you are fishing below the mini-me dam and below the tunnel going into the st.croix you will be ok. I've fished this for a couple years early in the season and yes it can be productive at time. I've see police and dnr patrolling this area so becareful. Good Luck!!!

This is what I found in the regs. Looks like we can fish from either shore.

Other Borders: Minnesota has a reciprocal agreement with each of

its bordering states: Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, and North Dakota.

Residents of Minnesota or a bordering state may fish throughout the

waters bordering the two states only if they possess a valid resident

license from their resident state.

Go to the spot by XCEL plant. It's open all night I think. I've seen people even camp overnight there. It seems to be productive or at least the mouth of the channel is.

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.
