Hello,
My family has lived on East Rush Lake since 1953. I have 20 plus years of very hardcore fishing in on the two lakes. I even have the channel being dredged btw the two lakes on 8mm tape (converted to VHS)in 1965. I have every corner, rock pile, point, weed line on GPS. I've also kept a record of my catches since 1989. I have them seasonally patterned. I'm a senior at SCSU in Freshwater Ecology and I've interned with the DNR Department of Fisheries in Hinckley. I understand a lot of the limnology of the lake as well. I've also fished many of the area lakes hard as well, including the St. Croix River east of Rush. I'll give info, but I can't be givin everything. Good luck. Hope to see you on the ice.

Hi Big,
fishing muskies on the East lake is easier and don't oversize your lures.

The ice looks weak even thought there is more of it. Still, I wouldn't attempt it.

.....thanks....its funny you should mention
musky lure size - metro lakes.....seems like a lot of people are catching 40+'s on bass-sized lures.....most notably 'spinnerbaits'...

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
