Amen!

I have been looking for some words of wisdom, or atleast a few fishing fibs. I have been getting my stuff ready and was going to hit the water later this week, now it depends some on the weather. I have found a few mentions of Rush on the Metro board, but with lakes like Rush and the Chisago chain, we should have plenty to talk about. I will post any info I come up with, when/if I get my boat in the water.

I'm just posting this cuz I got tired of seeing the last post in here was 4-18! It's like going to your favorite river fishing spot and finding the water level to low to fish!!!!

I fished on West Rush last night. It was as fast as you could catch them for all 300 people that were there. Or, at least it seemed that way. I just fished off shore to save a couple minutes on preparing the boat. And, I would say shore fishing was just as good, maybe better than boat fishing.

B. Were you down at the park? I like to fish the short channel on the other side of the road from the parking lot. Last year the water was up, so you had to wade out if you wanted to get on the fishing dock, but they were getting some nice sunnies off the end.
Thanks for the post!

Yes. I was at the park. I would say that the park on West Rush may be the best shore fishing opportunity in the state in the spring of the year.

Amazing how many fish leave Rush in buckets, and you can still catch quality fish year after year.

Yeah, they take a lot of fish out of the
lake(s), but it's still my contention that it is that very fact that makes it a healthy fishery. A lake with ALL big fish has nowhere to go but a big die off, and a lake with too many of one species just seems to produce stunted fish of that species. Rush has allways seemed to keep a good mix since people actually take some for the table!

Besides where else within 50 miles from the house can ya bobber fish for walleys and maybe tie into a 80Lb Sturgy besides! Remember the guy on East that had to beach that monster on opener!

Hey Guys!

I ws at the park last night... The bite is still good even with these goofy fronts coming in and out! One reminder too haul your garbage with you! It amazes me how big of slobs some people ca be, if you want the park to stay open and to have free access please haul your stuff with you, and guilt the slobs yu see leaving stuff behind! Just my two cents worth!

I was reading this topic the other night and heard the phrase "best shorefishing spot in the state", so I just had to drive up there and give it a try. You may be right, that is a fantastic spot. Thanks for the tip!

I going to tell you this because I believe that anyone that is crazy enough about fishing to get on the web to talk about it , is my kind of person, and I think you are a GOOD SPORTSMAN ABOUT IT! I was down there yesterday and I was seriously outfishing the 100 other people down there 3-1. I also brought home a limit of 10+ in. Crappies, nd a few 7-9 inch sunnies. I was using a red and white salted tube jig about a FOOT below a rocket bobber(had to have the rocket, because of the light bite). I would find a spot where someone was catching a few crappies and try to fish within 20yds of them, not 20 inches of them! throw it out and reel as slow as you can until the bobber stands up. The morining seemed to be the slowest, but I was also fishing cold water,

      I also have a north facing cabin at the bottom of the hill and I have the Weboost as well.  without it I just barely have reception and with it mounted to the outside of the cabin I can get enough reception for calla and texts (2-3 bars) and slow internet. I plan on mounting it in a tree this spring and should get better reception yet. I paid $399 at best buy for mine about a year ago.

      cg2, Welcome to the forum.   You may try looking at the DNR Lake finder site to look up some of the lakes in your new area for their test results.  Good luck.

      Hello all,   I am new to the area and don't know where to begin fishing. I'm looking for a lake around Mankato that has walleye / crappies in it. I would like to make it out a few times this fall yet and then hit the ice hard. Any advice on what lakes to start with? There's so many that I don't know how to choose which one to go to.

      Gonna try and get out for a bit over the weekend and hit some shore spots. Will post a report if they bite.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun. 
    • eyeguy 54
      congrats on the PB ! great time of the year. great pic!

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.
