Cedar and Harriet spots and info

3 posts in this topic

Any one catching anything from shore from Harriet or Cedar lakes? I am just getting back into fishing again and I don’t know if it is just me or the fish have not moved back up into the shallows where they can be reached form shore? I don’t see any nesting sites yet either and I have checked a few places around the lake.

I have tried slip bobbers with gulp worms and maggots, jigs / flu flu’s, beetle spins and power minnows with no luck.

Does any one out there fish these shallow basin lakes enough to give a new guy some tips?

Head to over to Calhoun. In the channel between Calhoun and Isles they were snapping last weekend. I caught a bunch of crappies, sunfish and the occasion incidental bass. I caught everything on either a red and white tube jig or a flu flu. Most of the sunfish were hugging the retaining wall, while the crappies were suspended a little further out.

Boy you went kidding about the sunfish hugging the wall just stood there and dropped it right down along the wall. I caught about 6 in couple hours. Still didn’t find any Crappies but I will give it another try soon.

Thanks for the tip!

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
