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.

      Thanks, Coast Guard..... for not making ships flush their bilge at sea.   For decades after the problem was apparent.

      Especially early season while you still have green weedbeds. You hit the nail on the head.

      Is anyone interested in pheasant hunting in SD in Mid or Late November?  I used to do more of it but kinda got busy with really young kids for a few years there and lost the dog around the same time. I basically gave it up for a while. I would like to start making a trip or two back out to SD and would really like to meeting some other guys who enjoy the sport.  It would be great to find a few new friends around the same age +/- 10 years and maybe some of the same interests in fishing and hunting. Live in the Twin Cities area so we could drive down if you are in the area or just meet out in SD sometime.

      I do not believe that is from Red. It shows sunny's under the smallest fish and according to the DNR, there are none in Red.

      On the main basin... As water temps approach mid 40's, walleye anglers reporting strong fall bite. Good fish caught despite a lot of precipitation this past week.  Clear weather in forecast.  Walleyes staging at various south shore locations in 20-29'.  Jig and frozen shiner the ticket. Anchor up and jig with gold, glow red, or gold/orange.  Fish are very active. On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be go to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Shiner run has slowed for the moment but good numbers of walleyes in river.  Sturgeon have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes though April 23, 2019.  The bite is on!     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be excellent.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite continues strong.  Big pike are making their presence felt, like it or not!  Muskie trollers boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come!
