RIP captain jim. Prayers to his family and all that knew him. At a time like this family and friends can find some solace knowing he passed doing what he loved. What a sad day for the Fishing community....

My prayers for Jim and his family.RIP. Crying

When I originally read this terrible news i was at a loss for words...so I said the above... Woke up this morning thinking about him .. I never met Jim in person..Seen him in action on TV..And ofcourse always read his posts..... I remember when he first came to Lake-Link and started posting to the chequamegan bay thread.He shared his experience with all of us and his posts were True and without ego..Many times he took the extra time to PM me answers to specific questions or even email them to me..He played a large part in helping me get started trolling the bay in the spring.. He was an Honorable Man.. He was real to life and a REAL fisherman! He helped people learn to fish and learn to catch fish, and he did it with class..He was always willing to share what he knew and loved to do..even on a public forum. As far as Im concerned he was up there with the likes of Al Linder as being a teacher of fishing.. I had promised several times to book an outing with him when i could, and we recently had feb 7th penciled in - just working out the details of machines and such..I really looked forward to spending a day fishing with him..I am soo sorry for his family and closest friends..He will be remembered.. As I think it was Cajunmusky said --- the next time Im up on the bay - Im letting one go back for Jim!!

glad to say i knew Jim from talking on here and facebook and meeting him at fishing shows, amazing person and legend fisherman. i have no words to express my sadness right now, prayers for wife and family. As for the spot, i heard his snowmobile went in near madeline island, but this could be rumour i havent heard anything for sure.

Very, very sad news. The fishing world is in shock and my condolences to his family. Maybe someone can post some info on the unsafe area and where to stay away from. Jim knew that body of water like the back of his hand and stayed on top of the ice conditions, which makes it even more shocking.

Jim Hudson's wife Hannah posted in Facebook that JIm went through the ice at 1 p.m. and he was life-flighted to Duluth with no heartbeat. CPR was ongoing for three hours at that point but it didn't look good. I've heard no details since then. We're all praying for our friend and ask that you do the same.

Nobody had more respect for Lake Superior ice conditions than Jim. He constantly advocated for safety on the ice as his posts on this website will confirm. Until we learn more, we'll just continue to hope that he survives this tragic accident. Please be very careful out there. jdc

Yup, folks are driving out of Ashland. Watch the pack ice field half way out to the lighthouse.

For Browns, north of Washburn has been best. And honestly, we have been catching them from 10 FOW out to 60FOW. Have to find the pattern for the day. If in deeper water, you have better chances of catching coho too.

Good luck this weekend everyone.
