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!

      Was on the US Side between Island View and the Brule for the last two days.  Tough sledding.  A few 15's for the cast iron, three over 22 and a lot of peanuts.  Nothing big, and not much luck marking pods of fish.  Probably spent as much time graphing as I did fishing.  Still shallow I think.  Casted shorelines and caught a few little smallmouth for fun.     Back at it next week Tuesday and Wednesday.  I'm going to go bottom bouncing in some deeper water and try a few trolling patterns with rapalas... see what happens.

      Hit the big pond today ,, Launched from McQuade and found a good 10 degree temp difference  from tea to clean water ,, Fish didn't cooperate like we planned but did go 5 for 7 in 7 hours trolling but that's fishing not catching ,, Great day spent on the water with pals ,,, Good luck to those who dont have 7 day weekends like us retired folks

      Haven't been active for some time.    Life can do that to you.    Changed jobs doing somewhat the same but what is different is I've been involved with the duty and honor of interment of our Nation's Veteran's.  I'm working at the new MN Veteran's Cemetery on Hwy 53 just North of Pike Lake.  I see myself doing this till its time to retire.   That and servicing Nils Master Blades during Winter months has been kept me extremely busy. Spring, Summer, and Fall is my personally resolution to enjoy my time and take to the water as much as possible. With that I'll share what I can.   Knowing you all have busy schedules too, I ask you share when you can.  We don't ask for your secret spots but share as you can.

      Catching blues under the bridge next to archery range in Shakopee on the Minnesota River. Water rescinding about 2ft a day.

      This forum Great Again.      Lets get some reports going on the Big lake going.  I know we have lurkers and that can share.  For those that don't know, you have tools at find patterns, water temps, mudlines, and surface temps.   Coastwatch for surface water temps.  http://www.coastwatch.msu.edu/superior/s1.html UMD Buoy Data for water temps. http://www.d.umn.edu/buoys/ Modis for mud lines.  https://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/modis/modis.php?region=s&page=1&template=sub&image=a1.19170.1900.LakeSuperior.143.250m.jpg    Hottest tip I can give lately an the temp break has been right on the mud line.   Compare that data on your next trip out.   
    • roony
      I would think the different items would be marked, or do you mean they wear gloves over their eyes?  
    • NorthBound&Down
      Has anyone here fished silver creek before? I'm looking to try a new spot on the north shore but I cant find much information on it. If you have is it fairly easy to access fishing spots there?
    • delcecchi
      I can see how it could happen.  Remember that these days all the prep people are wearing gloves, so might not be able to feel any difference.   Or both could have been frozen...
    • macgruber
      Thanks for the tips, I’ll report back after and let you know how we do.  Very excited to get up there.....

      Well, my annual trip was only an extended weekend this year, as I had to use my actual vacation to go to Florida for a wedding.    Drove up Friday morning after work, and was able to hit Two Island Lake for a few hours in the evening. As soon as we boated to my secret spot, a storm cloud moved over and the wind was insane! Temps dropped, and I only caught a few smallies.   on Saturday we went to Greenwood Lake. Even though we caught about 50 bass, it was still a slow day. Weather was perfect. Bugs were horrible! My dad caught a nice lake trout. My daughter caught her first northern pike, and I also caught one. Fished this lake for 30 years and never even seen a pike, now they’re taking over!   Fished Hungry Jack on the final day. Weather was once again perfect! Only caught a few bass. My son absolutely loves fishing off the resort’s dock. So the kids had a blast catching sunnies (including my daughter’s first).    Was a bummer we only got to stay up there a few days. My dad stayed until today, but I haven’t heard how he did. Didn’t see any moose. Was also the first time I’ve been up there and did not catch a trout. We got our fill of Sven & Ole’s and world’s best donuts. We might try to go back up next month.
