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.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
