A group of us had a great time today fishing by the airport lights. Early morning was great until 9 am. We were using small red jigs with waxi's. We also were successful fishing for bass and northern with tip-ups. The ice was safe for driving. Be careful where you go and drive slow. Don't be that guy. Tight lines and stay safe.

Went off fisherman's road today from about 10am-4:30pm. First was in about 20 feet of water south of bell island, right along the weed bed. Was not marking anything. Hopped around a bit on that side then moved more into the middle of the deep. There i found some consistant action in about 18 fow. the crappies were hitting from 5 feet off the bottom and down. pulled out a good 20-25, but it was a catch and release day so they should still be there if you guys want to go catch them again.

Was on the water by 7 Sunday. Nice to be able to drive but makes it easier for a lot others also. One question first. Why do people feel the need to go 50 mph on the ice? Fishing was steady the first 2 hours with lots of fish marked but then they got tight lipped. Ended up with 6 nice crappies. 1/8 spoon with 2 waxies worked best. Smaller tungsten jigs brought out the dink gills. Great day to Be out, should have just stayed out intead of heading in for the game..

Got out for a few hours on Sunday. (1/18/15) Fished the edge of the dredge hole in about 22 ft of water. I marked lots of fish right away, so I decided to put the camera down to get a visual of what was going on below. As soon as I got the camera into position I saw several decent sized gills staring at the jig but none of them took the offering. The same story fish after fish for at least a dozen times. I finally decided to hang it up after realizing this particular school of fish just weren't interested in feeding. Hopefully things pick up soon. Good luck out there!

Went out tonight for a few hours. Found a nice pocket of gills. Caught about 30 of em. I had to weed through some smaller ones but caught several 8-9". Even caught a nice 10". Landed a couple of bass too. Was a good night on the ice. Just need someone to fish with now... tight lines!

French Lake is known for big crappies & Northerns. The area around I-90 bridge was dredged during the 60's for the interstate. Water depths vary, sharp drops to 20-30+ FOW. Garmin Lake chips have detailed info as do area maps, I'm not sure if the navionics app has it. You can access it off of Spillway drive, Porta Potty, good boat ramp & parking @ North end of the slough. I haven't found any other reports on lake-link on this area, but it's fished fairly heavily in the winter. Lake Onalaska is actually a few feet away on the other side of the spillway.

BFMILLER,

it averages right around 6 ft. If you go to Ace of La Crosse on the Southside, they have a set of laminated maps for that whole area. Great investment.

They're both part of the river system, not Lake Onalaska. Never iced them proper, just during open water. Although, I have/do ice fish the starting edges of both, off the East channel.

Hopped around and finally found some fish in deeper water 16ft+. Caught about a dozen crappie 6"-8" , lost a nice 9or10" perch after it flipped out of my hand and landed in the hole. However did catch the biggest crappie of my life out there today at 1.9 lbs and 14".
