Rush Lake

Anyone have any luck at Rush so far this year. Drove by there yesterday, and seen a few duck's flying around in the afternoon. The level at the outlet was at 9.5. Not for sure how that measures up for water out in the middle where you hunt at.
Any day in the outdoor's is better than at work

hunted rush 1st opener sucked, hunted youth opener was a little better, but not much. the problem is there is no place to hide a boat. all the open water is covered in smart weed, not really any where to get next to the rushes. maybe later in the year when the smart weed dies and sinks it may get better. hopes this helps you.

Duckdog,kid(4 legged) and I been doing half way desent,its been worth my trip up,hunted little clear first Saterday opener and rest of time been making the trip,would be nice if they would put another board or 2 in,been running grandads old V with the Briggs and I never leave home with out waders and pushpole,smart weed is bigest pain,most water off the main is about waist deep,but as liv2 said once the weeds die off it will help running and hiding,cold snap had a 1/8 in.ice sheet last Saterday,ran 24 straight to be back and go and then did the duck call snore till everybody started shooting,was some decent numbers flying in and out.
smile all and have a great day all
