I've never had the chance to fish for bass in the lacrosse area on the river but would like to giver a try this week end. Was wondering if anybody had any info on where or any reports on the area? Any info would be great!

Last weekend the smallmouth were bitting like crazy on wing dams and rip rap shorelines. Shallow running cranks were working well, but they would probably bite on most things. Watch out for those dogfish and pike.

Well, if you want to catch white bass, they too are biting like crazy.

Some smallmouth will be on wingdams all summer and into the fall, but now seems to be the best time for big numbers. Picking the right wingdams is the hard part. I like to anchor in front or on the end of the dam and cast shallow cranks on the top. You will find out pretty quickly if you picked a good wingdam.

ive spent a lot of years fishing the La Crosse area hopefully this may help. try target lake, its roughly 1 mile south of the main channel bridge and to the east. ive found it holds alot of nice size fish but be willing to work for them. lawarnce lake just north of brownsville is said to have the highest density of bass on pool 8. it also has the highest fishing pressure. the wing dams will hold smallies year round.best luck with deep diving cranks or mid summer i do well with topwater. other wise pick a slough off the main channel and find the lumber or other structure. hope this helps and good luck

Hey guys,

good info on this post...i'm driving up from Texas to fish Winona and then the LaCrosse area. I think I have a pretty good hold on the Winona area but LaCrosse...I've never been to. We'll be after bass and northerns. Any information is greatly appreciated. wink.gif

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
