Fishing near the Hudson bridge

9 posts in this topic

I drive over the bridge several times a week to/from job sights and can't help but wondering about the fishing. Where is the easiest place to launch around the bridge area. What species/techniques work best in this area?
Thanks

On the MN side, south of the bridge is Beanies. I haven't used it but I hear it's a good ramp. On the WI side north of the bridge is a public ramp. Take the Hudson exit, then a left at the 1st light. Both are pay landings and are very busy duing peak times.(get there early) The channel is hot in the spring with jig and minnow combo's.

Bodyman,
What channel are you talking about?
I know the area very well. Are you talking about on the other side of the long point
that sticks out just north of the bridge?
My favorite spot over there is just south
of the bridge on the Wisconnie side, that 40ft. hole.(do you know the one?)
I catch alot of eyes and saugers right on the edges of the dropoff at night.(well late evening)
please let me know about that channel.
Always looking for another spot. grin.gif

jnam88, What I meant was the channel between the railroad bridge to below the I94 bridge. I haven't been out there but a couple times in the spring. seems to be the hot spot with all the attention it gets. That spot your talking about gets some attention in the winter also.

Bodyman,
Yes I know the area that you are refering to now. Yes that does get alot of attention
doesn't it? What is all the hoopla all about? Crappies? White bass? Walleyes?
All of the above? What? confused.gif

jnam88,

That spot gets alot of pressure early in the year for walleye and sauger.The fish kind of group in that channel early in the year.They like that narrow sandy areas where the current gets flowing.Alot of guys jig and minnow,troll raps,and drag worms through here.
Give it a try.
good luck!

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.
