Cedar

12 posts in this topic

Hi- Family and I are going to be staying on Clear Lake starting this Sat. for a week. I see the lake of the week in the Strib is Cedar just up the road. Am thinking of taking my daughter up there one day for 'Skis. Any general info would be most appreciated-as well as any danger spots w/ the low water I need to watch out for. Not asking for spot on a spot.. Thanks! 8-Ball.

Day bite has been slow. Fish around the islands and the shallow water markers or Muskie markers as we would call them.

My daughter and I were on Cedar last Fri. from 4-730pm. We basically followed the eastern shoreline all the way up trolling for 'skis w/ Believers. Nada-but I am intrigued by this lake (1st timer there). There have GOT to be some big fish of all kinds in there- Over 100 ft. deep and a fair amount of untouched shoreline. Kinda reminded me of a border lake-islands w/rock surrounding them and sharp, steep breaks. Last hour or so we jigged for 'eyes off two small islands on the North end. Looked good, too. Marked a lot of fish in 15-30 fow but all I could entice was a 3-4 lb. snake. Oh well, beats 'workin. Was kinda strange- only about 6-8 other boats on the entire lake, and most of them were pleasure boaters. Maybe this is a Fall turn-on lake-I don't know. But I want to get back up there again before ice-up.

We hit it again last night and this morning. One boat just down from us got two in the boat and lost another. I seen one about 40inch and another 50+ laying in the rocks but could not get them to hit.

Let me know when you will be in the area and we can give it a shot.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
