St. Croix in Hudson

Has anyone fished this area of the river lately for catfish? I am either looking to fish off of the shore or in my float tube.

I'll be out tomorrow night near Hudson, drifting for channel cats. Lots of shad showing up - find the shad, you find the channel cats.

If I was fishing from shore I would try the south shore of the 94 Bridge along the rip rap. I think you can get there along the bike path near the bridge - I've never fished from shore there but have fished along that shore in a boat. Cats should be feeding on shad along that shoreline.

Water is a little cold for a float tube - supposed to get down to low 50's at night the rest of the week. Wear you long johns and your chest high waders in that float tube. Brr!!

Just got in from our drifting trip. We got skunked - marked lots of shad and fish but couldn't getting anything to bite.

Reference your question:

Thanks. Do you use cut bait for the channels?

I prefer fresh cut bait for channel cats. I normally fish fresh cut sucker.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
