Rush Lake on Opener

5 posts in this topic

Thinking of trying Rush this year on opening weekend. Never fished the lake before, just looking for another option besides OT. If anyone is willing to point me in a general direction, it would be much appreciated. Don't necessarily need specifics. Thanks.

VERY good idea, hang around the edge of the deep weedline and good things will happen.

Any particular areas of the lake better than others early in the season?

The deep holes can also produce if you like to jig, nothing big but you will get some eaters.

we fish Rush every opener and do pretty well.. We fish on the shoreline breaks in about 8-10 feet of water still fishing.. we've caught a decent number of walleyes and northerns. my dad caught a 12.5 out there the year before last on the opener..I'm pretty sure that's where we'll go again this year.. Your more spread out from other boats, and if you get there in the morning it's not as packed at the landing... i think people go to ottertail and see the landing is pack so they then come to fish rush, because they don't have to wait to put the boat in,,,,

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
