On the Ice Team website someone said they were fishing on 9-12" of ice on Rush (posted Nov. 29). Is there good ice there now? Can someone confirm this?

Thank you

I'm not sure but the person who posted is from Wadena.

Oh I'm hoping it's by Rush City but most likely not......SON OF A!!!

Thanks guys! I (like everybody else here) am getting VERY anxious to get out on the ice. I'm to the point where I'm drilling holes in frozen puddles to get my arm musceles ready!!!! (I'm kidding)

ICE REPORT: No fish in the puddle at the end of my driveway! mad.gif

I just went out on rush today and there was anywhere from 3-5 inches where i walked. I didn't go out there far just enough to throw out some tip-ups.

9-12 inches of ice on Rush Lake in Ottertail county! They're on drugs. I was on it this morning (yes, the one in Ottertail County, near Ottertail Lake), and there was 7 inches for sure, but not 9 or 12. I was on Ottertail yesterday and that had 5 inches at best.

Yet another reason to find your information here at FM.com. It's accurate!

I have talked to a couple folks that have fished the Chisago County Rush on the north end of West. They said the ice averaged about 4 inches. Be careful.

measured last night out from petersons last night. 5 inches staight out farther you go north the less you get. north middle is fairly busted up around the breaks there is only 1 so lake travel is very iffy at best. ther is atv travel but is limited to shoreline travel only. i was told there is at least 6 in the narrows area and has had alot pressure in the last few days. fish we found last night were not very agressive hope its better tonight.

Hey Floord!

Do you live over by Wilsons???

I live on the West side of West Rush.....and There are still some scary spots! Thankfully with the lack of snow those spots are pretty easy to see! SO! Anyone Venturing out! Be careful!
On a side note! Especially at first ice! I can not stress the importance that noise plays on top of the ice. Over and over I have seen a good bite shut down from people banging on the ice with spuds, showing up at primetime and drilling a bunch of holes. You can literally watch fish dive for the bottom on your graph. SO please keep it to a dull roar!

About 4" of ice in front of my place on Rush (Chisago County). The last open holes froze over last week. There were a few guys out this weekend (no reports yet).

Hi Cory,
I haven't been out yet since we have just moved in & the honey-do-list is too long. I hope to get out soon though.

I was out there last night and caught 7 walleyes and 10 crappies. Only an inch or two of snow on the ice. 5 to 3 inches of ice on west. I'm sure there's atleast another inch today with the cold temps.

Shut up and fish!

How is the ice on West Rush ? Should've made at least another 2" the last couple of days. Have not had time to get there and check and probably won't until sometime next week . Anxious to get the big shack out .
