Rush is a mixed bag lake. It shouldn't be that hard to figure out, especially during the ice season. The large cities of houses sitting over the deeper water are crappie hunters. The guys you see in the slightly shallower water around 20 feet relating to structure are probably stalking walleyes. Shallow water anglers are probably hooking up pike and panfish. Haven't had alot of success? Join the club. If you want to catch fish you have got to put in the time. Early morning and evening fishing will increase your odds. Sitting amongst the circus on weekends probably will not.

I haven't fished little lake this winter but did last winter. We got mainly sunfish. In the summer it's good for sunfish and bass.

I've been out there a few times myself and haven't had much luck.
I was out there Saturday trying to find them crappies. Finding them turned out to be the easy part, getting them to bite was a different story. I was out there from noon to 9 and only managed to catch a dozen or so. Not a keeper in the bunch.

metrojoe,

We got out there about 4PM as to not disturb anyone for the sunset bite.

I'll tell ya the bite doesn't start until 7pm. I looked at my watch when I got the first fish/bite, 7:03PM.

It seems to be the "hot bite" time, this time of year on Rush. I'm telling ya you can almost put your watch to it.

Have fun, be safe, ask for forgiveness.

I fished W. Rush today from 4-9pm and got 10 nice crops. Gottum by Cigar in 24', 3-5' uff- da bottum. I must have thrown at least 10 or 15 back that were 7 3/4". The ones I kept were 8-11". They bit the best from 8-8:30. I used tiny minnows and small red glo jigs.

      No idea who that is.  Had to look it up though.  Born in 1911 and died in 1975.  That explains why I've never heard of him.

      Fished Tuesday-Thursday.  Caught a lot of 9-12 inch walleyes.  The only walleyes I caught over 12 inches were two 13 inchers and the pictured 22 inch.  Don't know where the quality eaters went.  Best action was 11am-4pm.  The walleyes were stuck on the bottom so I set my bobber so the minnow could just reach the bottom.  Then I would occasionally raise it up to entice them to bite.  Got numerous bites as I was setting the depth.  Neither the Y-store nor Vermilion Fuel & Food had rainbows so I settled on pike suckers and chubs.  Didn't catch a walleye on pike suckers the first morning so I just stuck with the chubs the rest of the trip.   Good luck fishing and enjoy the lake.

      Was up Tuesday-Thursday.  Travel by snowmobile was much better than 2 weeks ago, but still fairly bumpy.  Didn't hit any slush, but I didn't travel much off road.   There is only one road plowed out from McKinley Park now.  It heads toward the first group of fish houses to the right then turns toward Birch Island by that village.  This road was very wide and well cleared before last nights light snow.  Don't know if the wind caused much drifting with this snow.  The good road goes to just before the west end of Birch Island, then there is a small plowed road that goes behind the north side.  The slush spot from 2 weeks ago has frozen and the road is now straightened out there.  There are numerous small spur roads plowed off of the main road.  A few spurs about half way out hit some heavy slush, so that is still a concern if going off-road.   Good luck if you venture out, and be careful and courteous.  Enjoy the lake.

      Well yes, as a matter of fact I do. 🙂   Planning on heading out this afternoon to play in the arctic blast for the weekend.

      I don't think there is such a thing as cheap and sturdy. For unbreakable you may have to get away from plastics or fish on claim days. ☺️
    • gimruis
      Ballzout mounts are extremely sturdy.  They aren't cheap though.
