For the time on the road from Sandstone, you'd be better off going to Mille Lacs than Rush. Do a little research on some of the lakes between Sandstone and Mille Lacs-there is a slug of fairly good lakes just to the west of you up there. Also, just north of Sandstone are a few more decent lakes. Island, Big Pine, and Sturgeon to name a few can produce well at times. Ice condition may be an issue, but January is still a couple weeks away.

I would definitely take a look at Big Pine. You will get into crappies and on a good day a nice set of eater eyes.

      I used a self adhering tape to attach them,  but now the tape is getting sticky and a pain to use.  Any ideas what something else too use? Thanks

      Thanks for the reply Rick... One more hour to check off something from my only get to do it once bucket list doesn’t sound bad at all. If it were you is that where you would go?

      Wow, that was low!   But, from someone so use to bending over-well......

      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber
