E/W RUSH LAKE

12 posts in this topic

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!
