I live on West Rush Lake in the Rush City area and would love to see this spot have some action!!! I fish Rush all the time and have a good idea on what is going on on surrounding lakes. So I do have info to provide..... BUT......I am not going to post how I do and where we are catching fish if people do not reciprocate!!! If anyone has any questions on the Rush Lake area let me know!!!

I would like to hear how the fish are bitting in that area. And over by chisago, Green lake area also.No other forum covers these area not even the fish and game site.I do most of my metro fishing out that way, just this year the wind has taken me to Winnie and Mille lac's .I will post any reports I have when I get over there.
Thanks, Benny

I also find little info available about the lakes just north of the Cities, but so many folks fish them. Two of my favorites are Goose Lake northeast of Cambridge and Knife Lake north of Mora. Goose has cool humps that come up out of deep water, and Knife has a sand bar near the boat ramp that's easy to find an fish. I'd love to hear anybody else with some tips about those lakes. I'm wondering about the weeds on Goose; anybody have any luck fishing them? If so, how?

If you want to grow this forum, just keep posting whatever you have. As more folks become aware they will reciprocate. The key is to keep sharing as much info as often as you can until it gets a following.

It should be fun to see how this forum goes. Tinknal, where are you? How is your fishing going?

Went out last night on Rush, It was very slow until sunset than we picked up 6 walleyes real quick the key we found was fishing a small finger on a hump EXTREMELY slowly with a a big leech a red hook and a rattle bead the particular spot we were fishing is 15 ft deep but we were all over the lake yesterday and this is the only spot that produced.
Who is TINKNAL??????

I guess I can offer a post about Big Marine lake.......it's kind of a metro lake, but it's kind of east central, as well. Besides, I hope to get some help on Rush in the near future, so I better offer up some goods.

I was on Big Marine last Wednesday casting Shad Raps over the emerging cabbage in 8 feet of water. Picked up 6-8 decent bass, biggest one going about 2 1/2#. I tried to find some walleyes toward dark, slip bobbered a leech anywhere from 6 to 14 ft near the island. I only caught more bass.

I saw someone planted over the 18' hump west of the island well after dark, so I assumed they were catching walleyes. However, when I talked to them at the landing later on, they advised me they had only caught two perch and a bullhead.

I've been fishing Big Marine for several years, great bass lake, but I have yet to catch a single walleye there. DNR report shows a decent population......suggestions?

Good luck...........

to Coryn Tracy Sell Homes Have read your past for 6-01-2001 for Rush Lake, thoe I am not a walleye type of guy, so I really cant give much for a report on this type of fishing, but I do a lot of Musky Hunting on east and west Rush - my feelings about Rush is I do believe it is possible that Rush has a posssible chance for close or even beating the state record in my opinion for Musky. Last year I have landed 51in in boat and was really suprised of this size: which was boated right off a dock on inlet were a small light tower on corner horse if you know where this might be on the lake? Supriseingly a week later I hooked on Big Hog in same area that riped 150yard of 50lbs test right out of my reel kept running and broke off: even though I lost fish my heart was just thumping over the thought that took out that much line and my best 9in jerk bait: still tell this day I am hoping to hook back up to this Hog of a fish, but maybe I'll have better chance cause I do know there is Hogs in Rush. I have cought some 42-46-3in which to me is really not bad.I have found that Rush does get a pea green water type in late july or early august, but I dont usuallylet that stop me from Musky Fishing here on Rush when this appears, cause I use a orange top walker- or orange type of plug or bucktail lure, which I have done very good on fishing this Rush were its pea green: october time I usually troll around islands and have had times slow- but then days that are good, I found it is better to troll for a distance then stoped and cast for a while- usually a folow or hit will happen,{I will post any information that I have on Musky Hunting on Rush. When I fish there}. I do appreciate any information that you might have on this typ of fishing: that you might have on this type of fishing: that you might have or fish tales you might hear around evening camp fires: ha ha ha

Have a good fishing season

      Was a few years ago, but wade fly fished upstream of 53 for a half day.  Tried every popper and minnow pattern fly in my box with no success.  Finally in the middle of the day switched to a larger brown bugger that looked like a crayfish and caught them till I got tired of it.  Unless things have changed, there’s a lot of bass in there.  Not a ton of size, but every now and then you’ll pop a nice one.

      This looks awesome, your kids are about the same age as mine.  I’m really excited to show them the north woods next week, hopefully a few fish cooperate too!

      By larger limit, I meant 6, not 4 walleyes. I count released fish as part of the limit, too. Nothing wrong with a 15” by any means, but we had larger fish we could keep.

      Yes, smallies thrive in the upper reaches of select areas of the St Louis. Lots of structure to get caught up in, but great small mouth habitat.

      I'm about to take my brother and niece over to experience the Soudan Mine tour this weekend. I've driven there before but he inquired about boating to the mine. With the new state park, is there a public boat dock anywhere nearby where one could hike a mile or so from the lake to the mine entrance? I don't make it to the east end too often so my knowledge of bays and landmarks is pretty limited.

      Isn't that the mantra for muskie fishermen?

      Went fishing on Basswood on Sunday. It rained all day but we had a good time thanks to Mike Stark and The Ely Fishing Guide Company.

      Never seen it myself but I looked at the satellite images and thought it looked worth a float.  The dam would probably tell you what you want to know.  Couple good gravel bars too.  Maybe the water is dark or it is mainly deeper - that I can’t tell.   I fished the Cloquet a little where 53 and 33 meet and found good action so I’m assuming the St. Louis would be similar in that area?

      I spent the past 11 days at my cabin, fished 8 of those days and got some projects completed.  Fished Father's Day weekend with my FIL, 2-BILs, and my son, then High School friends this past weekend.  Both groups went home with limits with plenty of fish to eat during our stay.    Yes the bite was tough.  We moved around a lot and did what the weather allowed.  No real patterns, depths, colors, baits, or presentations.  Just put in time looking for them.  I'd say the bite was OK/good, a 5 out of a possible 10.  Some days slot fish were the rule.  My biggest was 29.5.  Some of the fish are already very fat, while others seemed to be on the slimmer side yet.     One day both the Coast Guard and the CO where working an area we were fishing.  Seemed like the CO found issues with 2 out of every 3 boats checked.  The CG seemed to find issues with 1 out of every 4 or so - ended their day escorting a charter boat back to the Rainy direction.  Sounded like they were working the NW Angle this past week.  We were ready, but did not get checked.     I will be up with my wife the week of the 4th, arriving Monday or Tuesday and heading back on Saturday to avoid the traffic.

      I did not get out this past weekend due to weather and wind but the weekend before we started to make contact with walleyes but only seemed to find the 13-15" fish.  We caught them in the 14-20ft range using jigging raps, rapalas, and lindy with a worm.  We caught a couple on Cross and the others on Whitefish.  I am going to try and slip up there for a night or 2 this weekend with the weather predicted to be nice and see if I can't find a few fish.  Good luck!
