Fished Rush, both East and West on Saturday.  Talk about tough conditions, all I could get to bite were Northerns and Bass.   Caugt one little 10" Walleye.    Might have to do a re-do and go there again.

I’d say it was 4-5 inches most places I was. I don’t know how it is out in the bigger parts of the lake though, so I’d be cautious if you head out there. The snow is insulting it pretty well.

First time on rush for the 2017 ice season and what a great day! I caught over 70 perch of which 50 would of been keepers and probably 20 jumbos. Also caught 6 nice Walleye and lost a big walleye! Tons of fun it was non stop action from about noon when I arrived till 6pm. Today was a catch and release day for me so they are all back swimming. But what a blast!

Tried again for walleye no luck today. Had a monster Muskie follow up on my bottom bouncer! Around noon I switched to pike and the fun began caught one 40 incher and about five between 34 and 38 inches. Tons of fun to catch. Had a monster strike by the boat however stupid me forgot to check my new bait for those rubber tube hook guards. Live and learn I guess. Still yet another awesome day on rush. Can't wait for Muskie season to open.

First time this year out on rush in a boat. Did very well, 4 walleye between 14 and 18 inches lots of perch and some crappies all went back in to swim another day. This lake never disappoints.

Got out and fished Rush last week, both Friday and Saturday. Actually fished a benefit tournament on Saturday. Wow two different days.  Species of choice was Walleye's of course.  Friday, we could have weighed 15+ LBS for 6 fish, Saturday we weighed one fish at 2 1/2 LBS.  However both days we caught a ton of fish all species on Goldend Shiners.  Sunfish, Crappies, Notherns. Bass, Perch, Walleyes, and Muskie's.  Yes we caught Sunfish and Crappies on Shiners, never done that before!


Oh yeah we caught Sheephead too!!

Thanks for the reply.  I usually get a few perch on East rush in similar depths, but haven't targeted them on the West side.   I have found a few off the sand points of West, but not good numbers recently.

Seems like they preferred 15-18 feet of water and minnow heads. Some on wax worms and a jig but the bigger ones wanted the Minnows.

What depth are you finding the perch?
