Rush lake

4 posts in this topic

Looking at heading up to rush lake this weekend was up last weekend but didnt do so good and was wondering if any one has been out and knows of some hot spots. Im taking a person out thats new to ice fishing and would like her to have a good time. I know of a few spots but am also aware that the lake is great for crappy. Thanks all

Thanks alot guys. I will be out there all day and if all else fails i have a few other lakes in mind too. And people driving out thats just plain stupid!!! I have thought about driving out a few times now but after taking a look in the holes once there drilled its more then aparent that there isnt alot of solid ice under the fluff of the slush.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
