Is it worth the effort fishing for tiger muskies there?

Worth the time? It can be. I've caught a few nice skies out of there even though I don't target them. They hit my rapalas and beetle spins.

Some will argue the Muskie fishing use to be really good but has faulted a bit in recent years.

It can almost be impossible to fish Cedar due to heavy weed growth & blooms during the summer months. Target Spring & Fall.

IMO Cedar is very hard to fish. Either it's too choked with weeds to even drive the boat on it, or it's pea green soup. There are a ton of fish in there do doubt, but I think there are better options.

I agree, I think the lake is full of fish, but its tough. I tried all last year looking for walleyes with no luck. I did however hook a nice tiger while trolling crankbaits. I was out there on the opener this yearand it was a weedy mess. I have given up on that lake.

No doubt it's very frustrating. I never fish Cedar during the day. I always choose the late afternoon & evening into nightfall. The fish are just way more active then. Also try fishing during light rain storms or after heavy rain days.

I fish tigers out there all the time and get some nice ones if you know where to get them but otherwise the eyes are really hard to get. i would say putting your time into getting the tigers there is a good idea...

I live on the lake and i wouldn't even bother touchin' it for a month or two yet. Its so choked with weeds you most certainly can't run a trolling motor in it. When you do hit it up though. I would recommend hittin' the south end. Although i dont do any ski fishin' thats were most of the muskie fisherman are hangin' out.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
