      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Anybody catching anything worth keeping at Cedar? I was out there yesterday for only a couple of hours with one decent northern that i tossed back. Ice is nice - I measured 13inches of nice looking ice. We were parking on the ice just out from the landing, but nobody driving yet.

I was thinking about hitting the South end for eyes, But I don't want to drive across the lake, heard that isn't safe almost all year. You know anything about that? Is there a public access on the Southern half? Any info is much appriciated.

You can get on by the county park off of 39. Was out last night and didn't have a bump.

There isn't a public access on the south side. The only way is to get on through private property. Please remember when parking on the ice not to park right next to the other vehicles. That is how accidents happen.

HWy 55 Half between Maple Lake and Annanadale- North on Illsley Ave. East On 67th St. North on Hoyt Ave. West on 72 nd Ave Should bring you to access on South End of Cedar. Doesn't look like access, But road runs into the Lake.

I have not used this access in a few years, so don't know if things changed-- It is Marked on GPS units as a Public Access.

Good Luck

Hey, thanks Robo. I'll let ya know what happens if I go. Still leaning towards Clearwater, but if I don't find what I want there, I might make that LONG haul over to cedar. wink.gif Buffalo is pretty hot on the south end... if anyone was wondering. Limit on 9 1/2-10 inch crapp's. Eyes seem to have slowed.

I dropped a 10" auger blade to bottom of the lake on the north end on Tuesday afternoon. After 2 1/2 hours with a aqua vu, magnets, and a bunch of miscellaneaous hooks, there was no luck with retreiving it ... frown.gif Never got to fish either.. frown.gif

Are those crappies still cooperating on the south end of Buffalo?

Is the lake safe to drive on?

As far as Buffalo its out my front window and there is dozens of people driving out in full size trucks, including me. As far as I know no one has fallen through yet. Knock on wood.

Been away for a few days, but I am back. Yeah, there driving pretty much everywhere on the Buff. I am still gettin the eyes and crapps on Buffalo South end, just learning a lil more now. These crappies and Sunnies I keep getting in between the eyes are a little on the small side. I was out on Friday the 4th, for the LATE NIGHT BITE and didn't get there until about 5:30-6, but the bite was so-so. Nothing worth getting wound up over(I mean the midnight bite). I did notice that at about 9 pm, the eyes came through (not a for sure pattern), but then all of the crapps that I got after 9 were all keepers! The bigger ones seem to bite a lil later. I noticed this on 2 other areas of Buffalo as well. I will be there on Saturday the 12th, for the sundown bite, on my favorite mid-winter spot. I am staying until atleast 11. Gotta go for some more slabs. Hard to beat a buckshot (rattles) but I just cannot find anything to out-produce my large red FROSTEE by Techniglo. My "for sure" favorite 2 years running now. Find a green/silver 4-dr. Dodge Dakota, and a green Eskimo flip over, and ya found me!

When you come into buffalo on 25, go south past the North access in town, and turn right on 12. follow for a mile or so, and it is on the right. Can't miss it really. Good luck.

Thinking of taking the big house out. Never have taken it out on Cedar before. I summer fished the lake and almost fell out of the boat when i saw how deep the middle was. Is this lake truly unsafe to drive on all year? Is anyone pulling big houses with 1/2 tons? Thanks for any help

The lake is "safe" to drive on. Beware of the creek by the public landing and yes it over 100ft deep in the middle. Its one of the last lakes in the area to freeze up but I saw full size vehicles on it several weeks ago. There are two creeks on the lake, one north and one south but there is little to no current in the lake itself. You can access it from the south side by Whispering Pines Golf Course if you do not want to cross the point with your vehicle.

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.
