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.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
