area fishing LaCrosse?

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of deciding where to move after my stint in Texas. I love to whitetail hunt, ice fish, and open water. I know how high the deer population is in Wisconsin, but am kind of unsure about the fishing opportunities. Anyone have any advice?

How did the deer season go this year?

Doop-The fishing around LaCrosse is excellent! We have the mighty Miss right here with many places to get on the water and fish. LaCrosse is also located close to many of the lock and dams. There are not a lot of lakes close. The bass, eyes, and cats as well as panfish are here in good numbers and size.

Doop, Living in the LaCrosse Area is great as long as your independantly weathly and don't need a decent job to get by. Lay offs here are happening all the time (Big Time). A lot of the jobs have moved to China. But even before that LaCrosse is the most underpayed place to work in WI. People with fifteen years in are lucky to get 12 dollars an hour. There are the Hospitals and the Universities and if you work in those fields you'll get by.

Musky,

I'm a teacher...by the time I move back north I'll have my masters and hopefully have an assitant principal job somewhere. I've been to LaCrosse once and was extremely impressed with the scenery. I love bowhunting and fishing. Not a big river fisherman but could learn. smile.gif

There are plenty of jobs here. Yeah, there are layoffs, but who doesn't have that? I do agree it can be tough. Construction is where the money is here now. There sure are a lot of "poor" people building new houses around here. Doop, learning to fish the river is done very easily. I came from CO and only fished reservoirs. Now, I love to fish the river. I am not yet a "river rat", but I do pretty good. This area has awesome scenery. That is one of the key points that keeps me from going back home to Colorado. Way to much to do and see in the LAX area.

Doop, This is a good place for you then. It will be a good place to pick up a just about new house reasonable too. Its a very good place to raise a family.

    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗
