Hello,
I'm finally back from school break. I fished East and West almost everyday since 12/26/01 mostly for walleyes. I caught a lot in the 14" range. I talked to some friends and they had the same results. I did the best in 20+ feet. The crappies have been outstanding on the West Lake. Especially off of Bird (Crane) Island. The crappies were exceptionally large too. I caught a couple better than a 1/2 lb. I also went to Red Lake (huge crappies), Lake of the Woods (not too great for me), and Mille Lacs (awesome). I'll be back on the water this weekend.

Hi All!

I have been lurking here for awhile now, and just registered today. I hopped over from up-north's ice shanty forums.

I have been fishing both East and West Rush for over twenty years now, and like every system it has it's good and bad years.
A good corallary would be these forums, you get your good and bad posts.

Flames to folks for silly stuff like web links, or posting about the big one you released are text we all just scroll by, and consider the source.

I really enjoy the service! Thanks for being here! And as for Cory Frantzick, I suspect he just may belong to the Rush Lakes Improvement Assn. all of whom do much more good in the area, than the whiners that seem to need a whole lake unto themselves.

I'm on the rag. I quit smoking yesterday. Just frustrated with all the traffic on the lake and no fish. Sorry Cory.

F4F: WARNING: Clintonism forthcomming!
I Feel Your Pain! I can't count the number of times I have tried to quit. Good luck, hope ya make it!

Just got back from East Rush, the Crappies were not where I have found them in the past.
A few smallish Sunfish where all I found ready to nibble. I think there are actually less houses out buy the mud hole this year.
I was suprised by the lack of traffic for a Sat. evening.

There is about 18" of good ice on the East lake, drove out with no problems.

Shadrapla,

An ATV will be just fine. Still lots of ice, but also be aware that there's a lot of slush and water on top of the ice which is making it really messy.

Good luck and let us know how you do

I can confir that the iceis fine, but, as Pwaldow stated use caution especialy near shoreline areas. On a different note I saw a pickup with a trailer and a fourwheeler in the trailer driving around on the ice late Saturday night! That seems a little crazy!

      Was on the US Side between Island View and the Brule for the last two days.  Tough sledding.  A few 15's for the cast iron, three over 22 and a lot of peanuts.  Nothing big, and not much luck marking pods of fish.  Probably spent as much time graphing as I did fishing.  Still shallow I think.  Casted shorelines and caught a few little smallmouth for fun.     Back at it next week Tuesday and Wednesday.  I'm going to go bottom bouncing in some deeper water and try a few trolling patterns with rapalas... see what happens.

      Hit the big pond today ,, Launched from McQuade and found a good 10 degree temp difference  from tea to clean water ,, Fish didn't cooperate like we planned but did go 5 for 7 in 7 hours trolling but that's fishing not catching ,, Great day spent on the water with pals ,,, Good luck to those who dont have 7 day weekends like us retired folks

      Haven't been active for some time.    Life can do that to you.    Changed jobs doing somewhat the same but what is different is I've been involved with the duty and honor of interment of our Nation's Veteran's.  I'm working at the new MN Veteran's Cemetery on Hwy 53 just North of Pike Lake.  I see myself doing this till its time to retire.   That and servicing Nils Master Blades during Winter months has been kept me extremely busy. Spring, Summer, and Fall is my personally resolution to enjoy my time and take to the water as much as possible. With that I'll share what I can.   Knowing you all have busy schedules too, I ask you share when you can.  We don't ask for your secret spots but share as you can.

      Catching blues under the bridge next to archery range in Shakopee on the Minnesota River. Water rescinding about 2ft a day.

      This forum Great Again.      Lets get some reports going on the Big lake going.  I know we have lurkers and that can share.  For those that don't know, you have tools at find patterns, water temps, mudlines, and surface temps.   Coastwatch for surface water temps.  http://www.coastwatch.msu.edu/superior/s1.html UMD Buoy Data for water temps. http://www.d.umn.edu/buoys/ Modis for mud lines.  https://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/modis/modis.php?region=s&page=1&template=sub&image=a1.19170.1900.LakeSuperior.143.250m.jpg    Hottest tip I can give lately an the temp break has been right on the mud line.   Compare that data on your next trip out.

      I would think the different items would be marked, or do you mean they wear gloves over their eyes?  
    • NorthBound&Down
      Has anyone here fished silver creek before? I'm looking to try a new spot on the north shore but I cant find much information on it. If you have is it fairly easy to access fishing spots there?
    • delcecchi
      I can see how it could happen.  Remember that these days all the prep people are wearing gloves, so might not be able to feel any difference.   Or both could have been frozen...
    • macgruber
      Thanks for the tips, I’ll report back after and let you know how we do.  Very excited to get up there.....

      Well, my annual trip was only an extended weekend this year, as I had to use my actual vacation to go to Florida for a wedding.    Drove up Friday morning after work, and was able to hit Two Island Lake for a few hours in the evening. As soon as we boated to my secret spot, a storm cloud moved over and the wind was insane! Temps dropped, and I only caught a few smallies.   on Saturday we went to Greenwood Lake. Even though we caught about 50 bass, it was still a slow day. Weather was perfect. Bugs were horrible! My dad caught a nice lake trout. My daughter caught her first northern pike, and I also caught one. Fished this lake for 30 years and never even seen a pike, now they’re taking over!   Fished Hungry Jack on the final day. Weather was once again perfect! Only caught a few bass. My son absolutely loves fishing off the resort’s dock. So the kids had a blast catching sunnies (including my daughter’s first).    Was a bummer we only got to stay up there a few days. My dad stayed until today, but I haven’t heard how he did. Didn’t see any moose. Was also the first time I’ve been up there and did not catch a trout. We got our fill of Sven & Ole’s and world’s best donuts. We might try to go back up next month.
