Rush Lake general info

6 posts in this topic

Hi fellas up in the Dent/Perham area, was thinking about making a run up to Rush this weekend, and was looking for some general info... Are the pannies starting to pick up? I know there are some beauty crappies in there, are you fishing those in traditional low light times and what depth? Thanks for any info, maybe I will run into someone up at Peg Legs smile.gif

Donk,sunnies are still very slow on Rush,size also an issue this year. Have heard very little bout the crappie bite.There are other close by lakes where the sunfish bite is worth checking out but snow is making it trouble sum..

bite has been slow and fish size/quality has declined. the lake has been pounded pretty hard the last few years- a prime example of people going back after limits. last year i watched two guys fish a spot for most of the day, two trucks showed up and with guys who started fishing the same spot while one of the trucks left with the 5 gal pails. not sure if the dnr caught up with them or not.

I was up there the past two weekends, it is slow no size to any of the fish anymore. Between 6 of us we probably caught 1000+ sunnies but only kept maybe 2% of them and we caught quite a few very small crappies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
