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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
