Cedar has been froze up since last Tuesday. I drove by 2 times on Sunday and didn't see anyone fishing yet. It looks slushy from the road. I may get out there today to check the ice.

Cedar is hit or miss. I think it will be mostly miss after a big fish kill this summer. Prior Lake has been fairly consistent. There's a lake to the south of NP that people get quite a few walleyes on early in the season. I'd better not mention the name here though.

I heard cedar is aerated and the dnr usually starts to aerate mid summer but was too late this summer and hence the summer kill. anyone know if thats true.

I am pretty sure the areater is turned on after ice has formed...

This last summer the oxygen levels got really low in Cedar, there were 26" to 32" walleyes washing up on shore. frown.gif This summer did hurt the lake but, I think not as bad as most people think.... I hope.

I was on Lexington the last 2 days and found 9" of ice max. There were a couple bigger shacks about 14' or so, but I didn't see any vehicles as of Sunday night.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
