Took a trip up to Rush on Sun. and had one of the strangest trips i have ever had anywhere. Trip strted out normal with a few 5+ pounds pike near the launch. then tried a different spot and the snakes were as thick as i have seen anywhere, we got 115 between 3 guys in 4 hours,Mostly doubles or triples they were in thick pods, largest was only 31 inches! confused.gif I have no idea how to explain these numbers of pike and extremem lack of size in rush which is usually few in number but very nice in size. Anyone else ever seen this on rush? Or have any explaination?

Maybe the slot on these lakes has caused less people to fish for pike. With more pike staying in the lake, maybe spawning has produced many smaller fish. It may be tough fishing shallow for panfish this winter with all these small pike in the lake. I might be loosing more panfish jigs than I would like. Were a lot of the fish around 12-14 inches long or bigger? You definitely caught a lot in a short time. Most likely they are shallow chasing panfish right now.

Alot of the snakes were coughing up small crappies, most were 1.5 to 2 lbs. i think the slot is great on Rush. i have taken about 10 trips up there this year with the avg. size of the pike being over 5lbs, this was a very isolated incident, i just can't figure out why it was only small pike in this feeding frenzy.

Might be that a bunch of food they like was in area.

Size an ease of reaching?

Seen this happen myself.

Can be a lot of fun.

But then sure enough next day you go back with a kid or a friend an ZERO.

Fun.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!
