went out to west rush by crane island. Bite was slow in the morning but managed to get 3 slabs the rest we released. We were in 32 feet of water, fishing 5-6 feet off the bottom. Thanks sparkyaber for the heads up on where you were fishing. Thats where we tried. Hoping to get out some other time for the evening bite.

Anyone been on Rush the past few days? Planning on going Saturday and wondering about ice conditions from cj's out. Are people driving or would it be safer to use my sled. Any info would be appreciated.

Hey SkoBandit, Everybody has been out on the ATV's and Sleds. I have not seen any vehicles Driving all the way out there yet. They are parking on shore by CJ's. My house has about 10 inches of ice under it. I would wait a couple of weeks before driving out. Crappies are hitting good around 5:30 to 6:30 P.M. we have been getting some nice sized ones to Good Luck!!!!!!!!! Its a complete zoo out there on the weekends also.

We were out by crane island yesterday and last night, with not much luck. There were tons of fish down at about 30 feet, but getting them to bite was a different story. Also the ones we caught were very small. Now the ice conditions: There were a few small trucks also a full size truck out that far, but the ice is still only 10-12 inches thick. Not enough for this guy.
good luck to you.

      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!

      Wow, it would be interesting to see if the big winners Cory, Justin and Dave all drove down from Canada together and where they hide the fish to get across the boarder?  🤔  😆

      I am gonna go out on a limb here and say they did not catch a 15 pound walleye on Upper Red in MN.
