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

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
