Rush Lake Bass

3 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone could chime in on the bass bite on Rush. I have a club tourney on Saturday and have only fished the lake once. Anything I have ever heard is fish shallow. Would anyone like to agree or disagree? Also, can anyone give me information about the water depth on the south end of the east lake where all of the lily pads are? The one time I fished it the water was around 5-8' but I figured since almost all lakes are down this area could be quite a bit lower. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

I have more experience on West Rush but here goes. The south end of East is full of weeds to the surface already. We hit West a couple weeks ago and our bass came on spinnerbaits. Most of them were frisky 10 inchers and our largest was 16" Be ready for lots of pike while fishing either side of Rush anywhere you find cabbage mostly. Work on your weed presentations since there is an abundance of them already!

We've seen plenty of big bass just cruising by the docks lately.

I was amazed at a Fishers-of-Men tourney weigh in last fall. 5 bass over 25lbs total won...WOW! Most people had one 5lber and a few 2-3lbers these two guys had 5 of them.

Good Luck,

Ferny.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      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.

      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.
