Rush is usually fairly good for sunfish and crappie. I am not sure about lately though. I know the crappies were biting on West Battle up until a couple of weeks ago. I haven't heard anything since. I don't know much about little pine though. I would imagine that you could find crappies or sunfish there. Check out the area bait shops they will point you in the right direction.

Good luck!

stopped by rush today for couple of hours on way home to st.cloud. marked a few fish, got some action on euro larvea with smallest glow jig you can find. nothing hot heavy, 3 to a pound after sorting them. kept 12, some a bit smaller some nicer.

very light hitting. 1lb test would watch for movement and cross their eyes.

      The ice is fine. I have a lot of standing water because my house is dark color. Come up and enjoy this weather. Ice is 24-30".a little snow left out on ice.

      Nick, you did a great job finding good fish for everyone.  Wished I woulda brought at least one rod and my flasher for the short time I was there.  But it was good to meet y'all face to face.   I got a hankering for some pannies now.  Might have to look for some tomorrow.

        I had the same experience today. Tons of little gills and very few big ones pike were not going on anything on tip ups today though. Wasn't fishing your area but figured I'd chime in. I had anywhere from 17-29 inches of ice with some water on top ice is great yet.

      Still plenty of good ice on Bartlett Lake today. 16" where I was at. No standing water on the ice yet. The shorelines were in good shape, too. Too bad it will probably all be trash by Tuesday.   The bluegill were biting well this morning, but for every decent sunny I had to throw back about eight potato chips.   The Northern were slamming tip-ups baited with shiners. Too bad for me I brought suckers. I caught a couple Northern, and a 16" largemouth as well. I would have liked to get out to the airport lake tomorrow morning (after a trip across the river to get some shiners  ), but I have other things to do. The backwaters around Winona will just have to wait until next December.
