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.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
