Hubs landing ( Walli 1)

9 posts in this topic

How is Hubs landing for launching a boat?

Is it fairly deep?

Also what hours do they let you put in?

Is there an honor box if you launch before they open?

Don't know if I will go enough to justify the seasonal pass.

Are you thinking of Plans in Downtown (cowtown) Hastings...(Hubs is the one right upriver of the bridge) I believe the seasonal is $100 or so, There is no honor box that I know of either, just catch them on the way back in, Don't think it ever closes either, we launch there all the time. The launch is plenty deep and it is in a marina with no current, good parking too.

Should be plenty deep for you, they launch many "big" rigs there, river cruisers and house boats. Great people too.

I launch out of hubs every season,I have for years, I put in around 4am,so hours aren't a problem, I do try to be quiet though, they do have a honor box but I'm usually greeted everytime I come in, so they can get a fishing update and I just pay then! the reason I go to hubs is there wonderful people and I'm usually by myself and there's never a wait to get in and out and I feel my truck is safe there! Plus I love the 3 mile run in the dark just to get to the croix.

Thanks Walli, the only reason I put your name on here is because I knew you launched here from previous posts. I think it would be easier for me to go here rather than drive to bennies.

The time of day you are out there has to be the most peaceful. I have been on the croix till 2 am but there are a few late nighters going at it on beer can and so forth. I would imagine at 4 am they are out like a light.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
