TOP SPOTS TO FISH SHORELINES
No boat? No problem! The area has amazing options to fish from shorelines, docks, piers, floats, and more without ever having to step foot on the water.
Lunker League strives to comply with all COVID-19 safety measures and recommendations. League participants submit their qualifying fish at their leisure and as the submission form is online, the entire process is virtual. Lunker League recommends fishing with individuals within one’s quarantine bubble and/or keeping social distance when able. Ultimately, the League is remote and the safety measures taken during fishing excursions are at the discretion of the anglers themselves.
Thank you for doing your part in curbing the spread of COVID-19 and exploring in the La Crosse Region.
