Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any suggestions for ice fishing the river. Looking to catch walleye, northern, crappie. Any help would be great.

There's a lot of rivers out there-help us out.
Which river are you asking about?

I'm sorry. This is my first try at this. I was referring to the Mississippi. Lake Pepin and the dyke road. Planing on going on the dyke road tomorrow and have no clue where to go. I'm not much of a crowd follower and don't like to set up in a spot just because that's where everyone else is.

Medic...Welcome aboard! Pepin has not had a real good rate of production yet this year. The dike road has been giving up fish, but the action has been on and off. Probably the best fishing for pannies will be found on the Wisconsin shore south of Nelson, all the way to La Crosse. Try throwing a post in the Mississippi River ,pools 5-11, forum and see if some of those guys can helpget you into some consistant action. Again...welcome!

Sure life happens- why wait....The Crapster....good fishing guys!

I ice fish the Mississippi. "Crowd follower" is a good idea around here with river current. I've been out a couple of times. If you venture out by yourself take a spud and use it. I fish around the LaCrosse and New Albin, IA area. The bluegill bite has been OK down this way. I've heard of some nice northerns on tip ups though. The walleye success that I've heard about in this neck of the woods is still coming from boat fishermen.

    • This team is not going anywhere with  Tom Thibodeau as there coach.  
    • Have to agree great game looked real good definitely more aggressive time will tell.
    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
