Cedar?

8 posts in this topic

Anything going on cedar lake recently? Probably heading up there this weekend. Not looking for specific directions at all. Just wondering if anyone has been out there. I heard that very few people have been fishing it... Sounded bad. Not much going on at my old go to spot on Waconia. Kinda depressing. Thanks...

It froze up late so I never made a trip out. I typically quit fishing the lake for Eyes by the end of January anyway.

Let us know if anything is biting.

Fished the south basin. Hit the second hump from the south. 20 fow. Droped the 5 pack sos. dead lined a small crappie min and used a gold pimple with minnow head. Fished sat from 5:30 am till 10 and caught one 5 inch perch. Sund I moved south about 2oo yds and fished in 32 fow and marked fish near the bottom. Nothing happinging though. Fished from 10 am till 1. I moved around after an hour or so and drilled about 8 holes. Droped a tip up down one in about 12 fow. Then jumped hole to hole looking for anything... Well I snagged 5 four inch sunnies and 4 five inch perch... Wow huh? Did see one guy near by throw a decent pike on the ice he caught while jigging a small shinner. Pike was probably 3-4 lbs. Man, was that ice thick... two feet at least.

I was also out there on Sun. I started at about 6:30a I was in about 40'marked alot suspended about 6 ft but couldn't catch any they were hitting my line just not long enough to catch them. I moved to deeper water away from the flock and started to catch crappies right away biggest 9" average 6" caught 10. I left around 2 I think it would have been better around sunset but had other commitments

      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.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
