Any one heading out there to W Rush on Saturday ?

I am taking my Daughter out there tomorrow, heard a few crappies were being caught.

My friends were out there today and caught 40 fish for 4 people fishing, most were smaller but one or two nice fish.

They fished by the island right out in front of the public access off 4, but I want to try some place else.

Maybe down to the right a ways I see there is an island there, or to the left side of the big island directly left of the landing there is a 25 foot hole there.

Open to suggestions or if any one wants to hook up,I have a yellow 03 Polaris sportsman 500 with a pourple outter cabin.

Or if the ice is safe enough will have the green and tan F-150 pulling the sportsman on a green/yellow trailor.

I was out there today and everyday this past week. The snow on the ice is about 3/4" thick and it is hard packed. We did get a light snow today, but it was really fluffy and it will probably blow into drifts. As expected, the lake has become a zoo. Today the houses and trucks were pouring onto the ice one after another. The fishing has gotten worse over the last two weeks for me. I think all of the traffic around the house has really turned the fish off. I mark a lot of fish, try everything, and get a lot less bites. Hope some of this helps people who might be coming up this week. If you see a blue Ford Taurus and a silver house, stop by and say hi, but don't start drilling holes right next to me. I don't want to sound like a jerk, but I showed some guys the fish I caught and the next day they were set up 5 feet from the door on the house.

Only 5 foot away?I would have been right next to your door:)Just kidding, I never drill next to any one.I like to find my own area to fish, but tonight was a little different for me.

I went out with one of the old timers from work , he was out there on Friday early afternoon and slammed the crappies.

We went and tried to find thier holes from last night but there was 100 new fish houses out there.

We got as close as we could with out moving in on some one, but with in an hour we had 5 more houses right on top of us.

We went to the island to the right of the access, there was only about 20 houses out by cigar island when we came on and maybe 30 or 35 by the island to the right .By the time we left at 4:30 there was over 100 for sure and at least that many over by cigar island.

Only caught 6 sunnies and 3 crappies for three people fishing.

For got me depth finder on the charger at home so I had to cowboy it but we at least caught a few.

I may try another lake tomorrow, but if the fish don't bite I will head back to Rush for another try at it.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
