Lake Onalaska - La Crosse, WI Backwater Perch
« on: Jan 17, 2020, 08:25 AM »
My buddies and I made our 2nd annual trip to Onalaska to chase ringtail perch - we did pretty well again with 100+ fish with most averaging 11-13"...biggest was pushing 14

Onalaksa sunrises never disappoint!






















Largest fish on day 1 - 14"er topped it off




Here are a few of the custom rods I built which we took on the trip

Nice Zilla
I'm a cheesehead by birth but have been out west for 30+.  Without giving up a honey hole...That's gotta be a backwater or slough area off the Mississippi correct?  Gawd I miss Ice Fishing in WI! 

Nice custom stix too!
