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'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
