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.

And how did you find that? Please tell me it didn't have anything to do with a Durango with and FM sticker on the side?

Cory, my buddy Shawn, Groloe might be heading your way during the week. Any advice for him.......

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.

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!
