Was wondering if anyone had been out lately? Anyone getting any more of those 17 inch crappies, or at least 10? smile.gif Cory? Quit working and start fishing

I did get some recent information that there was a very good sunfish bite on the south end of East Rush. 3-4 feet of water.

That's the best I've got right now, as I've been fishing a double-secret metro lake lately for crappies. And this weekend, I'll be up by Bigfork fishing.

I was out there last weekend. There was about a foot of new snow with about 4 inches of water under that. Needless to say it was tough getting around. We walked out and fished the edges of the deep hole straight out from the boat launch on West Rush. We caught a some nice sunfish(3 to a pound). We were marking suspended fish all day, crappies I think, but they would just bump it once in awhile. Managed to hook a few of them but it was a tough bite.

Thanks for the replies. Gonna give it a whirl on Saturday morning, then hit the sports show for the rest of the day.

I can confirm the sunfish bite in shallow water on the south end of East Rush.....you have to be in the weeds.

Sometimes they run two to a pound.

Good luck.

Is there an access on the south end of East Rush? Is there any good fishing within reasonable walking distance?

I believe there is an unofficial access on the west side of East Rush just north of the point that divides the deeper north part of the lake and the shallow south end of the lake. However, I'm not sure you can park on the road there. That's about a half mile walk. Peterson's resort on the east side of East Rush is a little over a mile north of the previously described area. A pretty good walk either way, but good exercise.

just a heads up that if the one on the west side of the lake you are talking about is a driveway down to the lake Buzzy probably has his gate up which will increase your walk!!

Fished West Rush yesterday and only found Perch. The south bay of East Rush looked like the place to be but its a long walk. There was still plenty of ice , but it was soft. This was probably it for me. When this ice fishing season started out I sure didn't think it would turn out this good.

See Ya,
