      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Anyone know how to get to the Hudson Dam?

Recommended Posts

I keep hearing about it but can never find it?

Is it a part of the Saint Croix River or some river that flows into the St. Croix?

Some Directions would be appreciated...if anyone knows.

Thank you.

I can't remember exactly but you can find it on the North end of town. Drive North through Hudson until you get to a bridge with a river going under it, I think its the Willow. I've heard it called lake Malileu also. I think you can see the dam from the road but can't quite remember anyway you should be able to figure it out from their it's West to the Croix which isn't far. I usually fish it from the Croix in a boat so sorry about the poor directions. I see people fishing off shore every time I'm their. I've done good for walleyes (in boat) and caught 2 sturgeon out a couple hundred yards also.

Good luck

Was there last night. Caught a 16 incher (walleye) and a small mouth bass. Walleye had no fight in it what so ever (what a waste of time). Two thumbs up on the bass. Of course, I practice catch and release.

Is the Hudson Dam a good place to fish? On the St. Croix side, or the Wisconsin lake side?

Big Ben,
The dam they are talking about is on the wis side in hudson along 35 going towards north hudson.You can either have mn or a wis license to fish here.On the St.Croix river side of the railraod bridge (with a mn license).When you e-mailed me and told me you where going to the Croix on sat are you going out on boat or shore??I figured boat.

Good luck I hope the weather turns a little in our favor soon!

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.

      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.

      We made a day trip a couple of Sundays ago. Fished from about 9:30 to 3:30 and my kid caught 2 walleye- 21" & 25" with a tag. In the past two winters I've made a total of 3 day trips and have a total of 10 walleye from 19-25 inches. I think the numbers may not be a may, but the quality is great. Very similar to the late 90's not as many fish, but great size.

      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
