briggs/rush channel

6 posts in this topic

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.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
