West Rush

3 posts in this topic

My buddy has a permanent near Crane Island in 32 feet of water and all we can cacth are 9-10 inch crappies but we want to get into some walleye action also. Not looking for any specific spots but wondering what general depths are they in, are there any in the depper holes or are they usually up shallower? Any pointers would help a ton! Thanks

Went out for the first time on the west side of cigar Sat. 2pm-7pm in 23-24 fow, had nothing until 4pm. 8-9 in crappies came in but no walleye. Vados Bait in spring lake park said the bite has cooled a bit but night was definitely better than day right now. Pattern held true for me Sat. but the cold limited my ability to hole hop like I normally do. Busted a tipup and scoop. Was cold once the propane gave out.

Pretty quiet on reports from Rush lately. Are the deep holes still producing or has the bite cooled off as the previous post stated? Trying to decide for Saturday between Rush or Wood, which is east of Grantsburg. Trying to put the wife on some fish.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
