rush creek again

9 posts in this topic

Went to the rush on Sat. morning and it was a little up,but still managed 10 rainbows 12 and 13" and 1 brown at 14".And jbtwins24 the fish seemed to have moved to the west further now.As I only managed 2 in town and the rest I had to travel to the outer edge of town.By the way where did you say you got into those larger bows?.Also tried to travel over and hit east indian and west indian,but only managed 2 small brookies on east and no fish on west.They were both very low.

just floated crawlers.Tried across from campground by woods and only hit 2 there.Best area was out farther I took a blacktop road at the edge of town and went to where the bridge crossed the water and right by the bridge and toward town a little in the fast deep water.But still no rainbows over 13" I should have tried hoppers,but did'nt.It seems where ever I go though that I can get one decent brown if i work it hard enough.Still confused on where the big bows are however???Are you hitting them in the same area as i am fishing?

Do you start just below the rapids upstream from the bridge in town? If so, where do you park? Is it all public access? My brother and I are looking to drown some crawlers (that's the only fishing he does) Saturday morning.

Yes thats right Ron.You can access the stream by parking at the city park there by the rv park by the shelter and walking up that side of the creek.There should be room to park over to the side.Don't try the other side however as there is some posted land on the other side.Hope that helps and good luck.Things had slowed for me there last time I fished it.Let me know how it goes.

ya basicly what he said. ive fished from both sides of the creek and its alot better walking down the side where the roads not, you wont tend to scare the fish. i three spots that i fish and ive been catching alot of rainbows and this was just the other day.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.

      Captain Acorn, I fish Jiggin Raps quite a bit on Vermilion, have for several years now.  I Cast em, fish them vertical and move around and cover ground at a good pace with them.  I am not sure there is any key to getting snagged less, other than knowing your spots. They are certainly an effective and a great way to catch fish.  I personally do not remove either the front or the back hook.  Believe me if you fish these your going to donate a few to the depths, just part of the game.    Good luck! - Roosterman
