Oh Thomas..you disbeliever! Small and large mouth bass are frequent on West Rush..picture at Rush Point Store prove their existence, and some darn nice size to them also! They are frequent enough that a new bass club is beginning on Wednesday nights..check out Corys website!

The sturgeon picture is from the Star and Trib from about 1962...some of the guys are still alive from that ancient date, and will swear by it! Check posts from this winter on the rushpointstore.com website, and they had a running commentary on how the elusive sturgeons were the ones causing all the fish houses to fall in!

if you hooked a small mouth 20 years ago, it doesn't count. caught lot of large mouths in the 4# range, but never smallmouth.

Rush Lake is connected to the St. Croix through Rush creek. That could explain the appearance of certain fishes.

The Rush Creek is dambed off, and has been for some years. So, either them fish are old, or there is enough to reproduce.

rush creek damm has washed out many times in the last 20 years and is not in use today. dnr has no plans to repair so the creek is open from st croix to east maybe more smallies will be seen in the future.

I've actually caught smallmouth (little guys) in that creek down torwards the St. Croix. All it takes is a couple.

However, I kind of think that river smallmouth are a different breed, so to speak, than the lake dwellers. I think river fish are so happy living in current they wouldn't even consider a lazy, old lake. But, I hope I'm proven way off some day.

      I fish out of a wheel house, hub or flip. Over the years I have found a camera to be an extremely fishing tool as long as water is somewhat clear. (Dont work well on Red or LOTW). My Flasher or Showdown both mark fish before they show up on camera due to cone area greater than camera view. Biggest advantage over flashsr/showdown is the "light bite" which happens often on ice. With flasher, red (fish) consumes green (bait) turning green to red indicating fish on - setting hook and miss. With camera I see fish barley lip the minnow/worm/plastic often hold a few to 15 seconds than suck bait in and instentally spit it out aka the miss. With camera you see the suck in, set the hook, fish on. Watching the many behaviours really adds to wisdom. Sometimes like last Sunday watching my grandkids playing and learning with Gills & Perch was extreanily gratifying. My camera is self built, in a suitcase totally push button wireless to drop, retrive, rotate left/hight, one button record high def.

      😄 yeah, actual lumber would be littering.  I just meant that as a slang expression for wood, aka branches.     For what it’s worth, I think you know I’m also one who appreciates a good muskie and will gladly abide by conservation efforts for the specie.  I just don’t put any one fish higher above all others when it comes to the management of a lake.  Except maybe lake trout! 🙃

      Lake travel getting better...you can thank me for buying tracks 3 weeks ago!!!  LOL  Good thing is it'll make it easier to get around bad part is the sun will start eating up the ice quickly.

      Cell service is spotty but ATT is available several places on the lake.  You can also use the cell phone at the Sherrick's office in an emergency.  Just ask for Steve.  Call 937 244 1900 for any additional questions. Chuck Ziegler Owner
