Sounds about the same. Had good luck by the sunken isle in the middle of the lake. It tops out at 5ft. I like the northeast corner and the southern tip. On a cloudy windy day i have gotten them as shallow as 5ft. Usually 10 to 30 depending on the day. Also will check the point on the northside of the lake. Lets see the rest of the milk run goes 3 small humps on the west end of rush. Everyone knows these tho so it will be bumper boats there. Also the inlet to the lake will be crowded i bet. Thats about it for me. I have a 2000 almuacraft t-pro maroon and grey with a pinpoint t-motor front and a vantage on back. Give me a hollar if u see me.

Thanks for the info Deemo. It sounds like you've had a few openers on Rush. This is my third and I have not had much luck on the south and east sides (they produce better in June). I'll give the north side a good try this year. Do you lindy rig to find fish on these spots or use the locator and sit on top of them? Are most of the fish caught in less than 15 feet? I just hope the wind isn't to bad. That lake can get rocking. Hope it's another good opener for you and everyone else.

Yep i will prob. sit on em with lindys or jigs. Might check the north end also but early morning there will be alot of boats there i think. Near the inlet. Hope the weather picture gets better. When those kinda fronts keep rollin in it seems to turn off the fishin at times. Keep tryin different things. Enjoy it guys openwater is finally here!!!

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
    • ozzie
      Sounds good!  I won't be up this weekend but in the future I will look for ya!  I am in a couple different boats but a Lund Tyee is what I would be in most often with a 200 merc on the back.
    • Hoey
      Not to mention that some of these boats had doubles on the biggies, so they could select the heaviest or caught another biggie after tagging one.  Our boat did not get a biggie.  We had over 24 slots for the day, our biggest was 25".

      Women can hike to spectacular views of autumn colors and Lake Superior on the horizon during a three-day fall workshop that teaches a variety of outdoor skills through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Getting to that view includes 330 feet of elevation gain on the Superior Hiking Trail – the kind of physical and mental challenge known well to Jo Swanson, trail development director for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and the keynote speaker for the fall workshop. “One of my themes is empowerment – learning to overcome fears of adventuring in the outdoors,” Swanson said. “We live in a culture of fear and people react strongly when women go on outdoors adventures, especially when they go alone. The truth is that with planning and preparation, the outdoors can be a very safe place.” The fall workshop is Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16, in a new location this year at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minn. Attendees will hear from Swanson and Minnesota state park naturalists. Session topics include Ojibwe heritage, Voyageurs, archery, canoeing, and the animals, plants and geology of the North Woods. Linda Bylander, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, said that along with the new location, the workshop offers a new selection of classes this year. “Women who attend the fall workshop gain a whole range of experiences in a supportive environment,” Bylander said. “We chose dates when the fall colors should provide a beautiful backdrop. The workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up but girls ages 14 to 17 are welcome to attend with parents or guardians. Visit mndnr.gov/bow for more information and to register.

      Quite a strong bite for the Streiffs tourney. I think there were 20 or so over 28", with the biggest weighing 10 3/4. Last year I think there were five overs. The boats were spread all over the lake. Many were fishing the mud, a few were quite shallow and some on the rocks. Most guys spoke of slot fish like crazy......but roughly 1 out of 6 boats having a 28" plus is crazy!! The stage got a bit crowded when the big fish catchers got up there for a picture.

      They can go on opener like everyone else does instead of pre-emptively scaring the local ducks out of the area.

      Congratulations!.  I am sure it's a bittersweet time for you.  All the best!
