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.

Thanks for the info.

The seasonal is $200. They do have sell a 10 launch pass for $85.

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 always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
