East Rush Ice

1 post in this topic

Went out on East Rush yesterday and found 6-8 inches of good ice under 12 inches of snow and 6 inches of slush. Wanted to fish the southeast bay, but the water was very low...maybe 2 feet deep and the going was rough. One house was out there, but it was extremely difficult to trudge (used a four wheeler, but got stuck in the slush and ice would vary from 6" to 4" so was kinda scary) out to where we thought we would like to fish. Turned around and fished in the narrows in about 10' of water. Caught some small sunnies, but overall was slow. Pulled off the lake at 2PM to watch the Vikes and people going out were saying the best bite was from 2-6PM. Either way, be careful.

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
