west side of Calhoun

3 posts in this topic

Cedar Lake is my first choice for fishing in the metro because I live a block from it, but, I'm thinking of heading over to Calhoun later tonight. I often see people fishing the western side of the lake, but they're always in boats. From a shorefishing perspective, should I try out that side also and hit the milfoil?

Yes, give it a try. That side of the lake does seem to get a lot of pressure though. I have been down there at 6am, and seen half dozen or more folks working it.

Then throughout the day it picks up angler wise.

Can be worth it though, I have seen plenty of fish caught over the years.

I live just a few blocks from there, so I end up spending plenty of time there early on in the season.

Cedar is one heck of a lake.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
