Great day on Rush yesterday. Caught about 30 perch of those about 15 were 10+ inches and caught about 4 walleye. All nice healthy fish nothing huge but fun non the less.

Got out for the first time this year on Rush. Perch are right where I left them last year. Tons of fun. Probably caught 30-40 total in 3 hrs of those 15-20 were nice keepers like the photo. I also got into some really nice crappies no walleye though. Ice was a soild 6” but the middle of the lake looked like it wasn’t completely frozen across yet so be careful. All in all an awesome day.

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.
Good day fishing there. What you have for ice Esox84.
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.
