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

    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad.
