I went out with the wife in the morning and fished east rush lake on sat. We caught a bunch of pike from 2-17lbs, most were in the 3-6lb range though. We also caught about a dozen bass from 1-4lbs. The walleyes eluded us though, we didn't get one all day into the evening even. I didn't even see another boat land any kind of fish all day while we were out fishing.

Most people were just fishing eye's though, and I think that the cold weather just shut down those eye's. The water temps were in the mid 50's depending on what side of the lake you were on. All of our pike and bass we caught were in the weed beds on a variety of artificial baits.

Caught six pike on the west side in the weed beds using bucktail spinners about 3-6 pound range. Also caught a couple of bass around two pounds. Fished walleyes for a little bit and caught a sunny in about 17 feet of water. I saw some people catching crappies in the channel between the two lakes. Could not get a walleye to open its mouth. I would have to say it was a good opener the weather was okay have seen a lot worse and a few fish obliged and tugged on my line.

Cory sounds pretty good. I'm sorry I didn't make it over to say hi. I would like to hook up with you sometime and fish over on west. I don't get over there too much.

I echo Eye Exist!

We had a pretty darn good opener!! Saturday we really struggled, but Sunday and Monday were great! Sunday I got 30 or so, most were smaller but ended up with a nice limit, and a bonus 28" eye! Monday was good and a little bit better average size, all of ours were between 16 and 19" with one 24"...

I'm glad to hear the fishing picked up after sat. I will prob. be up later this week to get some of the eyes I missed on sat. The fish should really be turning on in the next week with this warmer weather.

Has anyone been out this week fishing, I was out last night and if surface temp was almost 62, if I remember the opener was somewhere around 58, I hope the walleyes really start to wake up this weekend. Good luck this weekend.

Our best bite has been during the day.....Early morning has not been nearly as good, Even late evening has not been comparable to the afternoon bite. We have been getting walleyes bothe extremely shallow and pretty darn deep. Very nice average size this year!!!
