I just returned from the public access and spoke to three different parties coming off the lake. They report a consistent 6 inches of ice in front of Cigar Island and alot of ATV traffic, all over the lake. Action was slow but, the coming warm front should change that(I told Rush Point Store, on the way back, to get the bait ready!)

Caught five eyes and lost another, not so bad for the first time out! Best luck was from 3:30 - 5:30 P.M. Eight to nine inches of ice.

Take the Rush City exit, at the top of the ramp take a right and then the next right(across from the grocery store, a signs says Rush Point -> ) Go 1/2 mile to a 'T' and take a right and in about 8 miles you will come to Rush Point. Take a right there on #4 and the access is about 3 miles up the road. At the access you'll see three Islands, one to the left with numerous cabins on it, another straight out which is uninhabited and is called Cigar and another to the right of that called Braham(one cabin on it) My house is the green one parked off the north end with a 'RushPointer' sign on the door. I'm at twenty feet, fishing 3 inches off the bottom with gold hooks and fat heads.

Again, no problem, If you take the Harris exit, just north of North Branch, there's an awesome bait shop, take a right at the top of the ramp and it's just a quarter mile down the road on the right(a big pole barn) he supplies alot of other places and always has the best prices and the largest selection of tackle around.......... GOOD LUCK!

I was broken into once, actually several houses were during a snowstorm by someone on a snowmobile when everyone was home riding out the storm. Since then I don't leave anything of value in my house. I tend to stay away from the more popular areas and fish were there is less traffic and noise so my house is always a prime target. I've not had any trouble for some time though, 10 years or more. It is a fun lake to fish and I'm always running into great folks out there.

I just finished a walleye dinner! Got three more eyes tonight. It was pretty quiet out there, last night it was a very busy place, I think everyone was excited about having good ice this early. I'll head out again in a couple of days.

I pulled the house off tonight to wait until it cools off again, two other parties were pulling theirs off also, man this weather! When the extended forecast looks acceptable again I'll take it back out, maybe Sunday but, it would be nice to have some snow to bank it with, where's winter???????

Well they say a good cold front will start again sometime next week with highs only in the teens and lows below zero at night, I hope they're right, might even get some snow too! I've found the best walleye fishing on Rush is always Christmas through about the second week of January so there's still hope!

Hey guys I am not real familar with Rush lake and even though someone has already given directions I would like to know how far from the Twin Cities is this lake. It sounds like a good lake and would like to get my 6 year old out for a while in the portable. Any info or advice on where to fish it would be greatly appreciated and just to let you know everything I catch is released!!

Hey Fishin

Rush is about an hour north of the cities, it is a great lake, but does recieve a ton of fishing pressure in the winter!

It's been said you can't put an auger on the ice without cutting somones toes off! LOL

It's not that bad, but it does recieve alot of pressure!
Bring your kids out Saturday am for the FM get together!

      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.
