Fishing near the Hudson bridge

Recommended Posts

fishtrap2

I drive over the bridge several times a week to/from job sights and can't help but wondering about the fishing. Where is the easiest place to launch around the bridge area. What species/techniques work best in this area?
Thanks

On the MN side, south of the bridge is Beanies. I haven't used it but I hear it's a good ramp. On the WI side north of the bridge is a public ramp. Take the Hudson exit, then a left at the 1st light. Both are pay landings and are very busy duing peak times.(get there early) The channel is hot in the spring with jig and minnow combo's.

Bodyman,
What channel are you talking about?
I know the area very well. Are you talking about on the other side of the long point
that sticks out just north of the bridge?
My favorite spot over there is just south
of the bridge on the Wisconnie side, that 40ft. hole.(do you know the one?)
I catch alot of eyes and saugers right on the edges of the dropoff at night.(well late evening)
please let me know about that channel.
Always looking for another spot. grin.gif

jnam88, What I meant was the channel between the railroad bridge to below the I94 bridge. I haven't been out there but a couple times in the spring. seems to be the hot spot with all the attention it gets. That spot your talking about gets some attention in the winter also.

jnam88,

That spot gets alot of pressure early in the year for walleye and sauger.The fish kind of group in that channel early in the year.They like that narrow sandy areas where the current gets flowing.Alot of guys jig and minnow,troll raps,and drag worms through here.
Give it a try.
good luck!

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.
