Plan on headin' out to Rush for the first time this year and am looking to launch out of East Rush. Can someone tell me where the public access is on East?

How's the water level and the LM bite? Thanks in advance!

If you get off 35 in Rush City, head west at the top of the ramp. Its that easy, keep following it and it will take you right to the ramp.. Its in the far NE corner of East Rush.

As for the bite, I havnt been out there in a couple weeks.. is a decent bass lake though.

Cool....thanx Deitz, I'll update with my results. Sounds like the wind is going to blowing 20+ so it might be a little tuff.

Here's the update on my outing on Rush last Sunday: Wind was cranking out of the W/NW so I tried hitting shallow water on the west side on West Rush. A couple small LM 12"-13" a few hammer handles, and one that went about 30". I had something huge slam my spinner bait in about 2 FOW and instantly break me off, didn't even get a look at it.

Ended up catching around 10 LM all from 11"-17" in about 4 hrs. I tried fishing off shore but fighting the wind in my 18' Lund made it really tuff to keep boat position so that lasted all of 5min. That thing is like a kite when the wind gets blowing.

Not a bad day but could have been better.

i was also on West Rush Saturday and Sunday and good luck on drop shot rigs and a couple on swim jigs. Not huge fish but same as twister with bass around the 14-17 inch mark.

Had a small tourney out there on Sunday. We had 14.93 lbs with 16 something winning it. There were actually some decent weights with several around the 15lb mark and a big fish over 5... only 6 boats showed with the rough weather in the am. Glad to finally catch a half way respectable weight on that lake... its been a while.

I noticed that guy running around I think. He wasn't fishing, just driving around and watching everyone. I guess he had a tournament out there on Sunday.... if it's the same guy that is. What was the problem this time? Where was your tourney out of?

He decided to do a circle around us about 40 yards away watching us with binocs and running over our weedbed, then proceeded to watch us for about another 10-15 minutes from like 80 yards away. Nothing too bad, but it just bugged me that i spent all that time tryin to find them fish and what they wanted and he just found out everthing i was using and doing in a matter of minutes!

    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
