Any recent reports for Rush lake? The Mother-In-Law lives between Deer Creek & New York Mills. The wife & I are heading there for the week from Brainerd...bringing the boat along so I can get out for awhile...& the wife can spend some time with her mom.

Any other lakes worth hitting? She lives down the road from East Leaf...whats the best out the 3 leaf lakes?

I was on Rush today and had a good day for only 4 hours out. Found fish shallow and deep(20-30). Crawlers and spinner w/b-bouncer worked for me. Saw a few guys trolling cranks also.

Had some luck tonight out on Rush. Was out from 7-9:30pm & ended up keeping 4 eyes 17" smallest & 20" biggest. Also caught a northern at dark. Was mainly fishing the horseshoe trolling raps 10'-14' fow. Sr-5 deep divers in Perch & Bleeding Chartreuse Shad worked the best for colors.

I spent last saturday morning, the 23rd, on Rush and found great luck with fatheads on spinners attached to weedless bottom bouncers. Creeping in that same depth of 10-14 FOW produced the best results. Kept a 14", 15" and 18" and threw back a couple 12" eyes. Had fun with a half dozen or so pike that went back to eat more perch. Caught a bowfin that gave me fits (fun!) and got defecated on by more than a few rock bass! Great way to spend a perfect saturday morning in OTC.

      Wow, interesting

      Back when the DNR was seining our beach in July I asked, and apparently they were through oak narrows.   But long way to go to get to us.   I'll keep my eyes open and my mask and snorkel on.  Didn't see any sign off them this summer.

      Nice job Troy.   We are happy with our opening day for ducks.  2 man limit of mixed species by 10am.  LOTS of people where we were today but that was expected.  Other than getting beat to our spot, no issues that would keep up away.  Not even the rain.

      Thanks, I'm riding this now TW200 so not sure I can get on any of the ATV trails. Might have to sled by in the winter! 👍

      There are actually 3 tree carvings on the trail from Soudan to Ely.  I saw 2 of them but missed the 3rd.  I believe that trail is the Prospector Trail #4 or #6.  You have to start from the parking lot on the Murray Road 2 miles past Soudan since several property owners on the old railroad bed didn't allow off-road vehicles on their properties.  Another option is to travel from Tower to Embarrass then on to Ely, but that adds a couple hours to the trip.

      I've seen that caving on a few web pages. What trail is that on?  It would be cool to ride by. 👍

      The colors are getting good. Beautiful time of year. Maples are full red and birch and aspen are going too.  I’m not finding a formula for walleyes. Best luck when fishing saddles and shoreline drop offs 10’ down to 20’. I’m using old crawlers, too, because a) it’s hard to find minnows although Northwoods in Cook has them and b) it’s been too warm to keep them alive.  We do have a change in weather happening right now. Wind is coming up and the temperature is dropping. It’s going to be hard to fish Saturday through Monday but the change could be good after that.  Good luck, you’ll need some. They are out there and you’ll get dinner but you’ll have to work for them. RLG

      A few pics of our ride.

      Thank you. Yes, weather does look sketchy but we'll make the best of it. Looking forward to the colors and just getting away.

      Some more heavily fished lakes are tough ALL season.  Lake Minnetonka and Mille Lacs come to mind.  The water is clear, there are tournaments all the time, and the fish are not easy to catch.   That is why I focus my efforts on lakes with less pressure.
