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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
