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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
