som eof each. Bigger was more prevailent. They were really fat. Hit pretty lite though, needed spring bobber at times, other times they were pretty heavyhitters though. Fish about 3 inches off the bottom. small minners and tiny jigs. they didn't mind plastics or berkly gulp either.

That is a fun lake to cast raps from on the road. in the spring. Keep it in mind the eyes are active in early spring on that lake.

Well, not EARLY spring -- you know after the opener.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
