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 read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
