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.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
