BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!

Needing some location assistance with this. One thing about this forum is that I feel comfortable about asking a stupid question with feeling super stupid, so at the risk of that... here is my question. I have fished Rush quite a few times and have my favorite places to go, but not familiar with all the island lingo. I know where cigar is, but I am not familiar with brahm island. Is that the closest one to the boat landing with the little channel between it and cigar? In the summer there is a short dock that comes out from it and there is a swimmers float near it?
I have not been on Rush this winter yet.. having a perminent on another lake has been too conventient... but I am planning on expanding my horizons this Saturday on Rush with some friends from out of town and would hate to sort'of "sink the ship".
Thanks,
Hooks

The island you have mentioned is Braham Island. It is the one closest to the public landing. The small channel between Braham and cigar is never a safe place to drive, every year someone goes in there. Since now know Braham and Cigar Islands the Island to the south of those two is called Wilson Island. Hope this helps.

Hey Hooks!

You got some good info from the Johnoator! The key to ice safety on Rush and for any lake for that matter, is NEVER attempt to drive anywhere that the lake narrows considerably! Another place to stay awy from is obviously the channel between East and West, the narrows south of Crane Island (that is the island on the far south side of West) Stay away from the channel into Little Lake. be careful on East Rush if you go through the narrows into Lower lake. If ya stay where there is traffic you will be just fine!

Hey,
Thanks for the info. I was wondering if brahm was a spelling error, but also did not know that island was called braham. I knew that little channel by cigar that I described, was not a good place to go, but wanted to make sure that I didn't go someplace that I shouldn't. Going through, can make a fun trip into a bad trip very quickly!! Maybe run into you if you are out there on Saturday. And thanks again for clearing things up.

Braham Island was also referred to as 'Bankers Island' at one time.....since the original property owners were....you guessed it...Bankers!! (They were the only ones who could afford it!!!)
And....to make matters worse...Wilson Island was reffered to as 'Pig Island' at one time....my understanding was someone brought pigs over there.....not real sure on that one, however....but both those were topics I heard about in the past....

Enjoy those bits of trivia!!! and....
Stay Safe!!

glad to hear i'm not the only one who needs a little help with the locations on this lake. I usually enter from cj's and fish the edges of the 40ft hole straight out from the access. am I going to run into this ridge?

wher is the safest place to drive from the public launch over to the deep hole by cigar?

wolfboy,

I'd assume there's a pretty well worn trail from the access to that deep water. Follow that. If you're concerned, walk out. No shame in being safe, and there's nothing wrong with a little excercise.

I was out there yesterday. There is a pretty worn path out to cigar city as well as pretty worn paths out to other cities on the lake. And by the way, We didn't do awsome with the crappies, but we had one heck of a good time. We caught enough to keep us content out there and to beable to raz each other between the two portables as to who was going to catch the biggest, the most and to reminisce and laugh about our deer hunting this year. I think that my friends from out of town went back with the feeling of a fun filled day. That is what it is all about. Good luck to all and I hope you have as much fun as we did!
