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 scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..
