Hudson Area?

Recommended Posts


I like Bass Lake east of Houlton and Sqauw Lake to the east and a little north of Somerset. Bass Lake has some decent crappies and some huge sunfish. But, it is a hot and cold bite that usually leans cold. Squaw has numbers of sunfish and crappie. The size is not what it used to be because it has been absolutely raped, but you can still find some keepers.

On either lake, be prepared to drill lots of holes until you find the better sized fish. One place can be as good as the next on Squaw. You'll want to find the weedline on Bass or a weed pocket. Don't fish the open areas, stay in the weeds. But, you want to be close to some type of edge. Bass is also teeming with 1.5lb pike. So, figure on losing some jigs.

If you're feeling adventurous, Cedar Lake to the north and east of Somerset has some nice crappies and sunfish. But again, this one can be an all day affair trying to find fish.

Thanks Ray. I've heard about both of those lakes. I usually fish north, around the Dresser to Luck area, but I live in Hudson. So it would be nice to find some closer fishing. I have had very little luck icefishing on the Croix.

Snagger, like Ray said,Bass lake can be real good for some big bluegills and crappies.Fish the north end and talk to some of the old timers that are there every day.They like to talk and will give you some good tips.They did with me anyway.Don't give up on the St. Croix,though.It started off slow this year but can be real good.Let me know if you're going down there sometime.Good Luck Fishing!!!

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
