Hey Folks!
If you got 2-2.5 on West does this mean that East Rush is going? Doesn't East always get going before West? Just curious. Thanks!

There is a solid three inches of ice and it is making much more. 4 of us set up on West Rush and were able to hook a dozen walleyes.

GOSH!!!!!!!!!! It really felt good to be on the ice again. Heading out tomorrow for a second helping grin.gif

Buddy of mine was one East Rush yesterday. He said it was a pretty consistent 3 inches, some places had a little more. He went to Fish by Harris on Friday and said there was 2 inches. He's kind of numb-skull when it comes to safe ice judgement.

I saw a few guys on Pokegama as well. There was about 2 inches out there (according to their report) and some open water. That's real smart.

The Rush Point Store has a great web site with up-to-date fishing reports on Rush Lake along with pictures to boot. Key word 'rushpointstore'.

My house goes out this weekend, wish there was some snow though to bank it up. Without the snow and a good wind it could become a mobile home!

Try straight out from the West Rush public access around Cigar and Braham Islands. This is a good place to start on early ice or if you're just learning the lake. There's a good variety of structure in the area also.

I went down to the West Rush Lake landing tonight and spoke to three different parties coming off the lake. They report a pretty consistant 6 inches of ice in front of Cigar Island. Alot of ATV traffic also, all over the lake. Slow fishing action though but, the temporary warm front coming tomorrow should have things picking up a bit for the weekend, we'll see????? There were about 20+ vehicles parked there at the time.

      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.
