Started late today, on the ice 2:30 pm.  Upper landing @ Dresbach, 18 + people coming and going, until sunset.  Tried depths of 7, 8, 10 feet.   Had a lot of lookers, but no takers.  Perch talker, Copper & green color with waxies drew the most attention, had two taps on that setup.  A live shiner @ various depths, nothing.  Rosey red, plain hook, nothing, on a Kalins silver castmaster, nothing.  Two people that were leaving @ 3:30 pm, after being there since 9:am, stopped to talk a bit.  They had caught numerous northerns, tip ups w/shiners, 18 inches off the bottom, 8-10 foot of water, largest 26 inches.  Also several small perch, on rod & reel.   10 + people @ the lower landing, just before dark, all set up inside and along the riprap.

Fished the Black River on the north side of the I-90 bridge getting away from the crowds. Popped a bunch of holes and eventually found suspend fish in 23 ft of water. Basically threw the tackle box at them using spoons, Shad Raps, jigs, waxies, and plastics with nothing but a lot of lookers.  Didn't see much action from the folks with tip downs out either.  Solid 12 inches of ice.

Hey Pike fan,

I would fish Onalaska if I were you. There is a lot of big pike in there eating their share of those pan fish. 

Good luck!

Can anyone recommend a spot to try for pike on the river? Almost all the reports seem geared towards panfish. I am from northern WI and am currently in Prairie du Chien. Don't mind traveling and have found some marginal success on pike from PDC on south. Looking to try maybe Desoto bay, Stoddard, or Onlaska. Just not sure what is the best choice. Not looking for anyone's honey hole just trying to find the best general area to target. Any help is appreciated.

Most on these links are tight lipped about where they are catching fish.  Ok-fine, but I'm not. Cold springs pool 9 has been hot the last week, lake Onalaska has been on fire, and Green lake has come alive in black hawk.  Not sure what this cold temp will do.   I walked all the way past the islands on Lake Onalaska yesterday, (25 min. walk), only to find that I forgot my waxies back in the truck. Was not going to walk back, so used yellow and green Berkley crappie nimbles.  Caught fish, took home about 15 nice eaters.  Could have caught more, but my partner wooosed out.  He got cold. and wind picked up.  Probably will go back once we can drive out there, plus everyone else, O well.  Tight lines

Bluegill, crappie and perch bite is hot!   Had limits the last few days using wax worms and jigs.   The ice is still thin in spots, use caution and common sense when you venture out!   Not familiar with the area, I can help get you on the fish without you or your equipment going for a swim.   I have days open this week and next week for daily shanty rentals, sleeper shanty rentals or guided trips.

Been catching just enough eater perch at a mid-pool backwater to keep me interested.  However, today was weak, and it's getting old, so time to try somewhere else.  Rosies and waxies were about equally effective.  Depth was about 10'.  Bite was over by 4:30 each time out.

Very happy to see the weather bring us some very cold temps the middle of next week.  It should really tighten up some areas of the Black and main channel that right now I am a little leery of hitting.  Only bad thing is we may see vehicle travel onto Lake Onalaksa.
