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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
