Doughnut Island?

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone have knowledge of this island near Hastings? Supposedly it has an inner "pond". I am curious due to a family concern. Any help would be appreciated.

Never heard of a Doughnut Island. But go ahead and take a look around:

DOUGHNUT ISLAND is located on the St Croix River north of the Bluffs Regional Park (also called beer can island)

There are a few islands between the dam and the the 3M Chemolite plant. Try google earth or terra server for satellite maps. Beer Can Island is just north of the 94 bridge in Hudson. I've never heard of it referred to as doughnut, but maybe it is.

Snatcher,

I know which one you are talking about. You are correct, I thought the one just north of the bluffs was the nickname for that too. On my river map it lists the one just north of the bluffs in the no wake zone as donught island.

Huh! That's a new one on me! For as long as I remember, which is way back when my friends still operated a resort there. It was called Kinnikinic Island.

I wonder what boat of drinken fools renamed it? smirk.gif

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
