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

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
