I haven't been since June, so I'm heading up to Rush this weekend. Any recent reports from the LETS folks and/or others?

Try [email protected] if you like to keep things close to the vest.

Thanks!

Hey Husk!

From the LETS event we had this weekend...I can tell you to fish EXTREMELY shallow for both bass and Muskies....Crappies were caught by a few boats in 10-14 feet of water..Pwaldow and Myself found some really nice sunnies last week in that same 10-14 feet of water...but it sounds like they also moved shallower!

If you would like some more detailed info feel free to email me! And stop by sometime while you are out! You can't miss my place!

Cory and I have been conversing through covert, underground means, so I failed to thank him publicly for the help and info.

So, THANK YOU!

Thanks for checking in, too, Bornofice. Have you been having any luck anywhere these days?

Huskminn,
During the LETS tourney, we caught most of the bass by casting buzzbaits and spinners into the grass. Northerns were mostly found a few feet off the grass on spinners. Pay attention to blade colors. Only caught one muskie and it was in the same spot as the northerns. Panfish were found shallow(4-15ft) on small jigs tipped with waxies. Good luck and let us know how you do....

Huskminn,

Most of my time has been spent on vacation with the family (minimal fishing), fishing club tournaments, and pre-fishing for the Minnesota Smallmouth Bass Championship on the Mississippi in Anoka on August the 17th. Hopefully, a year's worth of success will be piled into that tournament. I won't be able to pick on the East Central Lakes until Labor Day weekend.

BTW - an informant told me there's been a good panfish bite on Fish Lake south of Mora recently.

Well, a major cold front just blew in. Very windy day today....getting a slow start with everything today, but...as my dad always says, the best time to go fishing is when you can.

So I'm going....putting in on East Rush this afternoon.

Bornofice, I hope you're doing well today in the tourney. I'll look forward to the report and also to your reports after Labor Day.

Don't know if I'll see you Cory, but I'll be in a tan Alumacraft w/black 40 Merc. Anchored, I'm sure.

Flat tire on trailer.....spare in my wife's trunk at the airport. I did a lot of standing around and staring at the flat tire.

Needless to day, I didn't make it out.

Did anyone buck the wind on Saturday and have any luck?

      The water temp had dropped to anywhere between 44 to 40, depending on where you were. Saw as low as 37 in Bystrom Bay. The temp we saw the most was 41.  It’s cold!

      A bit of a hike in, but well worth it, Mud Lake off the Inchon Trail I'm sure.....maybe we can meet up Brian and Tracie, I'll bring the potatoes and baked beans 😎

      Probably Lake Alott.   It kinda looks like a lot. 😉

      I seen on JR's Facebook they had a pic of a tournament on upper red.  It showed a #8, #12.6, #14.4 and a #15 walleye......I thinking this was some kinda joke....can anyone enlighten me. When I talked to a guide a year or so ago I asked him how many #10 walleye he seen come out of upper red......he said he hadn't seen one since he started to guide.    
    • Agronomist_at_IA
      After reading all the post and having gone to upper red once a year sometimes twice (Started renting shacks then got a wheel house 3 yrs ago) for the past eleven years. I find this entire thread and topic somewhat laughable. The locals and resorts seem to complain about an issue they've brought upon themselves. I kinda agree with the post you've put up to a point.    Here is my view.....maybe it is wrong. I drive 7+ hours from Northwest Iowa pay the fees to fish in Minnesota for a couple days. Pay the resort fees for roads, pay for services at the resorts. I tend to buy fuel, bait, propane, and food at the places we use, and sometimes other services. These people make a living using the lake to BRING the business to them. Then when they get the people to the lake and get some money flowing and are having success with people showing up.......the big problem is trash......Seems pretty simple to me if your a resort......figure out trash management for you customers. They showed up and are using the services you provide. A simple $5 tagged onto a road fee with avalible dumpsters could solve the problem. I actually have never had any issues with trash on my trips....so I'm a bit supprised by all this. I mean people are going through the resorts for services and willing to pay. If $5 was a deal breaker.....then why wouldn't people just go out of the public acess points, and not pay any resort fees.   The first 7yrs the guide we use had a trailer on the lake and had his customers throw tied off bags of trash in it. Then he disposed of it. The last three years with my shack the resort we went out of had a dumpster to throw the trash in. I'd gone out of JR's Access, West Winds, and Rogers. When We came off the lake we stopped in and asked if we could throw our trash away....they always said yeah put it in the dumpster.

      Thanks. That's one of the ones that I was considering.

      The water temps were 44-47 degrees over most of the lake this weekend. Black Bay partially froze Friday night into Saturday.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I saw a lot of guys running planner boards. We braved the cold ride Friday and Saturday, going from the far west end over near Shamrock. We spot locked in the wind and had pretty good success with the 11-13" walleyes but nothing of size except a few beautiful jumbo perch. We just used jigs in 30-35ft of water with rainbow minnows, the smaller the better. Big minnows were useless.   We didn't stay at any of the west end locations too long, but mostly because we weren't marking fish and weren't getting any bites. I would have liked to work longer for the bigger fish.

      Care to share where in Ripley this feeding flat is?  Maybe I shoot a deer and catch fish in Ripley this year!😁

      As usual Curt, thanks for all the reports you provide to us folks that only get up to LOW 4-5 times/year.  Coming up again for the MEA weekend, fishing Thursday-Saturday.  Looks like Thursday's going to be nice with warmer temps and WSW winds.  If we get the heavy WNW winds on Saturday, is the LP area fishable.  Seems like the more west it is the comfort level goes up dramatically.  Bringing the kids this trip, so there not real big fans of the 4-5 footers if you know what I mean.  Hope to see ya Thursday, we'll be in a 2150 Lund and 18.5 Alumacraft.
