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.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.
