Anybody have any first hand experience with a guide service for the area?

why do you need a guide? just go the normal perch producing spots

If you want to stay in iowa hit up desoto bay (southern end for perch), new albin area, etc. If you spring for a WI license just head straight to Lacrosse and Stoddard

Airport lights, first day, no guide

Nice work Matzilla. You fish the Miss a lot? Grew up in Dubuque, never made it that far North.

I fish it quite a bit down this way....I've ice fished Dubuque, Cassville, and Lacrosse to the north. Backwaters are by far my favorite areas to fish

I fished Onalaska last year. We went to Lawrence Lake this year without success. I'm gonna hit Onalaska again at the late ice period this year. Excellent size and variety.
Every plastics manufacturer claims plastics outfish livebait. So now I use livebait just for the increased challenge.

Matzilla I see you mentioned New Albin. I was wondering if there are multiple places to get on the ice or just the boat ramp. I have fished Black Hawk area but never ventured up Minnesota Slough very far (in the summer).

Would like to hear more about north of new albin. Have not fished up there this winter due to the min slough not freezing over early and poor reports. I have fished from green lake to greymore this year with not a lot of luck. don't mind walking but don't want to mess with current areas and weak ice. Thanks
