      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Rush Lake Fishing

Recommended Posts

EYEFINDER

My family will be staying on Rush Lake and fishing it and possibly the area lakes over the week of the fourth. Any help with a fishing report would be greatly appreciated. We like to fish for walleyes, panfish, and northerns. Thanks for any help anybody can give.

Good luck to you guys. The walleye bite on Rush is pretty slow. You have to stay on almost all day to find the patterns which seemed to change frequently a week ago.

The reason the bite is slow has to do with ice fishing. I spoke with a number of people that own the resorts on Rush and they told me that there were more ice fishermen on the lake then they have ever seen. They yelled at them to try and get them off the lake but to no avail. That seems to be one of the main factors for the slower bite.

We pulled out a few walleye here and there a week ago, but nothing close to how well we did last year. Towards the end, we went with the steady bite - panfish and bass. They are still fun to catch, especially if you have kids in the boat.

The northern's we were catching, as a majority, were smaller than usual as well. We usually get a few that are over the 5lb mark, but this year I think 3-4 was the biggest. We caught plenty of pike, but most were like ropes.

We have a place on Rush and the fishing out there this year has been great. There are plenty of fish ih the lake. I was out there quite a few times this winter and there were no more fishhouses that normal, so whoever told you that is bull. The fishing out there just slows quite a bit towards the end of june. The bite is slower now because of the bug hatches. You wioll need good electronics to find the fish now. I would guess the deeper humpd and islands would be the places to start.

What baits do you use in the warmer season (late July and early August)? Trolling, still fishing, jigging? I am coming to visit from Illinois for my third trip to Rush. I have done well on panfish, but would like to learn some walleye fishing.

thanks!

you can email me at ggorrell23@aol.com

I would start out with about a 6-7 ft snell, with a size 4 or 6 hook. Use either a leech or a crawler. I have been doing better with crawlers. I use a no-snag sinker with this. You could also try redtails too. I have not been catching as much on them though.

Walleye fishing is great ?? Not for me I guess.. One of my neighbors caught a 8lb.+ eye but have not seen any numbers at all. Fishing has been picking up but it seems that june was really tough this year. High water and storms every other day might not help.
Some semi stable weather is kinda helping things. The wife/kid and I caught about 30 sunnies, some decent size in the afternoon.

Westwood,

Anyone can come on this forum and say things like you did: "The walleye fishing on rush has been great, just have to know how to fish them." "Great" for you might be 3 10 inchers in 6 hours.
I figure general statements like this are all baloney unless the owner of the statement can back it up with some specifics. That's what this forum is about, sharing information, not trying to make yourself sound like Babe Winkelman. If you can give us some details about "how to fish them" your statements will be at least slightly believable.

Thanks for the help SXViper

I could try this on my local waters before coming up. Look forward to trying it.

Fishermat,

I can back up my statements, fish in the shallow waters using a bottom bouncer 1/2 ounce works the best, I pull a 30 inch snell on a plain hook with either crawlers or leeches, the pike suckers on a a heavy jig in the 20-30 foot water will pull a few walleyes. try that and let me know how you do!
