We just finished a week on Rush Lake. Windy and rainy, but we caught lots of fish. Here's what I know - I'm no expert, but I can pretend. LOL.

1) Sunfish - in the reeds - 4-6 feet. TIGHT against the reed beds - flip plain hooks with waxies. We did real well east of the 2 towers in the reeds - lots of really nice sunfish. There were lots of bass in the same areas as well - 1 to 2 pounds. All Nice fish.

2) Walleyes are going in that 20-25 foot range on spinners with crawlers. Lots of people are fishing the south east breaks - looking for fish and fishing the individual pods. They do have a great lakemaster map out - bring your GPS - or you will go crazy out there. (well, at least I did). I know the guides were using 3 oz bottom bouncers as well, but he was really hunting fish. BTW - whoever that regular guide is out there is a real pro with a sweet Lund 2010. I know his rates are real reasonable and he puts you on fish - so you might want to call him and see if he has an opening. His name is "Josh Haggemeister. Here is a link

3) The rock bass are EVERYWHERE.

4) I never checked for walleyes shallow, pulling cranks, but you gotta know they are there.

Hope this helps. Have fun. I love that lake.

Just got back from Rush. Stayed at Shady Grove. Got there Monday 6/11, left on Friday 6/15. Caught every type of fish the lake has to offer including Dogfish. Hammered the Walleyes on the North end of the lake in shallow water, 4-8 feet trolling Lindy rigs with crawler harness and leeches. Many fish in the 17 to 20" range. Lots of fun. Strong South wind blew for 2 days. Must have blown bait to North End. Did well in this shallow water no matter what time of day it was. Trolling very slow with just a split shot for weight, just enough to drag across the tops of the weeds. Good luck and have fun! wink.gif

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
