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 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,

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
