Rush Lake

8 posts in this topic

I am thinking of heading up to Rush there on monday. I have never fished it before, was just wondering if any any anyone might be so kind as to help me out with a starting point. East or west? I have heard of people doing good earlier in year but nothing latley, courious if anyone could tell me a location of access, heard of landing by CJ's bar? Any help would be great thanks!!

Check out the east central forums, there is plenty of info on there for Rush Lake. There are accesses at the north ends of both lakes, if you check the DNR site, go to lake finder and type in Rush in Chisago county, and it will let you look at the maps. They show you were the accesses are. The landing at CJ's is closed, as is the bar, a very sad situation behind that. Have fun.

since cj's closed the west access has been like [PoorWordUsage] to find a spot before you could drive out there

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
