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.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
