My guess is the big male bluegills may be off the beds by now. The water temperatures are reaching 80 degrees on the lake with this weather. You should still be able to find plenty of action as Lake Onalaska is loaded with panfish.
81° - 88° F
I was there 6/5 and 6/6. 2 guys we did very good both days. All male bluegills, kept some from 7 1/2" to 8 1/2"s. Fished shallow 1-2 feet of water. A lot of weeds around makes it tough though. Also caught 5 keeper perch.

Yesterday, on the water 3 pm to 7pm. 1, 38 inch post spawn northern, on a pink road runner, 20 plus crappie. Kept 7,for a meal. Top 5 feet of water, plain hook, minnow and slip bobber, in 12 foot of water, for the crappie. The later it got towards the 7 pm the better the bite. With this warm up the next week or so should make for some great fishing
Is lake onalaska good for bass? It looks like a pretty large area of water but I haven't fished the river down south. I was thinking of trying it but didn't want to take the kids all the way there and find out it isn't known for bass.
thanks for any advice
