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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
