what are you catching out there? I had a buddy from work catch a 15 inch papermouth out there a couple of years ago. I've heard there is nothing but bass and a few decent northerns out there, is that true?

Decided to go to Bush on Sun. from 2-8pm caught mess of crappies between 4-10" in 15-20'fow. Pounded small sunnies up to 4pm. We had a couple of tip-ups out no-go on them. Just a real nice day and big full moon....WM

WallMaster - sounds like Bush might be a good spot to bring my 5 year old for some sunny action. I tried Crystal last saturday for our first outing together. Managed 5 small sunnies in about 1 1/2 hrs, and he had a blast. Bush is even closer to me and if their biting, that would be great.

What part of the lake would you recommend for sunnies? Most importantly will be not to let the little one get bored. Don't really care about the size of fish, just the bite.

Hey Fazerfish, straight out from the cement boat landing 40 yards or so off to the right a little for sunnies 8 to 12 feet and then go to the left of the dock down near the point sticking out on the left side. Stay between both sides of the lake, like in the middle before the point in about 12-17 fow for crappies and some sunnies....Have fun...WM

can you take a snowmobile on bush with the boat motor ban?

Good question.

I know in Mpls, St. Paul, & some suburbs you cannot drive on lakes with a motor ban, but some other localities allow it. I'd check with the city before going out with the snow machine.

I believe bloomington has a city ordinance, no snowmobiling in city limits

You can take a car or an atv as far as I know but not sure about the snow machine. You can probably call the park ranger and find out at Hyland Park reserve down the road from their.

      I started using a chain hoist like this 2 years ago. Much easier for one or two people than a rope block & tackle. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004PX1F9S/ref=psdc_511406_t1_B009F257DE?th=1

      I thought I read some where Cliff mentioned 66-67 over the weekend and it'll start to slide now with cooler temps.
    • Sculpin
      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅

      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁

      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away.

      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster
