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.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
