Trap. I am originally from the La Crosse area. Lake Onalaska is a good place to ice fish, decent for bass and sunnies in the summer. I only fished there a few times myself. There is a place called Red Sails resort I think it is, its off of cnty rd Z if memory serves me. There is a bait shop on the left side of the road if your heading north on 35 thru onalaska Its about 3 blocks past the Dairyqueen thats on the left at the first light north of interstae 94 overpass.. They can give you some tips and good directions where to go.

Another good place thats easier to find is to go south on 35 to Stoddard. Its a little town of 750 people south of La Crosse about 10 miles. It will be evedent where to go when you get there. You will see a ton of cars parked along the road nrht of town. There is a wayside there, but unless you get there early it will probably be full of parked trucks.

Also Goose Island has some good spots for gills and crappies. it is south of La Crosse about 3 miles, its readily marked. Hope this helps some.

I tried Shaffers and camp 22 this past weekend also..nothing but dinks. I marked a lot of baitfish on the screen...too many baitfish. It must have something to do with the bite. I'm going to try EAgles Nest Flowage this weekend. I'll post with my results

    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
    • I have no doubt that by now there is something on the market that is better than my FL-20 and my FL-8 but I already own them and they work for me and I am long over the days where I have to have the latest and greatest fishing equipment.    Most of these gadgets, gizmos and lures are better at catching fishermen than fish.
    • My bird places nice with vexilars and doesn't get it too bad when there is a marcum in the next hole.   Keep my FL18 as a backup/loaner, it's been bulletproof.  But I haven't looked backed since I got an ice55 bird.    
    • lol. my brother hates them also cuz they thow a robin chick out of the nest sometimes. Only a couple here, if i had too my they would meet my 17 pellet. Red squirrels get a pass. not enough here. Grays are a different story. 
    • put a new floor in over the past month and finished it off by winterized it on Saturday.
