Spent most of Sunday fishing East and West Rush Lakes, first time fishing the lakes in the thawed water season. Largemouth bass and large northern pike bite was pretty consistent on the deep weed edges. Jigs, creature baits and worms produced the best. I went through a lot of my old mushroom head jig inventory losing them to hungry pike when paired with a red shad worm. I did manage two northerns around 6-8lbs that did not bite me off.
Manged several blow up on frogs, but they all just slapped at the bait, did not take it. Shallow fishing was a tough go, deep fishing was much more consistent. Pictured is one good largemouth that did come shallow.More info at Rich’s Bassin’ Blog
