briggs/rush channel

Any one know what they are catching just to the west of the channel betwen briggs and rush? No one was around today to talk to, but there sure are a lot of houses there. For me it seems like an odd spot. Just wondering, had to leave early, one kid fell in a ice hole, the other one was really being annoying, and my last match would not light.

I was out there last wednesday with no luck. I drilled about 30 holes on both sides of the houses with only little perch being caught. Briggs has been slow this year it seems. I have a hard time fishing it with Mille Lacs being about 45 more minutes away.

I would guess they're fishing walleyes? It dosen't take long for word to spread on those lakes. You would be better off in the little hole on the east side of the channel. Last summer I was catching a nice mixed bag of fish there including crappies, walleyes and sunnies. Just watch the ice, it can get a little thin in that area. You might also have some luck on rush around the spear houses for nice sunnies.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
