Cedar

Recommended Posts

I've noticed a lot of people have crossed the road and started fishing the north end of Cedar. It's a spot I usually wait til after the 'toothy' season ends. Just wondering if the papermouths are hitting out there yet or if you guys are just avoiding the zoo on Belle?

Welcome.

I have talked to a few guys that have been between Cedar and Belle without much to say about either. Sounds like the pike are getting more aggresive though the big slabs are very few and far between, even on the usual hotspots.

Then again, if they are getting the fish on Cedar, I probably would not see them on Belle so who knows.

I know in the summer it's not to bad and last winter I was out there and I could see the bottom in 8 feet which happens to be about as deep as that lake gets.

I haven't been out there this year yet so don't take my word for it.

2 trucks went threw the ice lastnight on cedar. NO JOKE... Talked with a few guys who fished out there and I guess 1 house out there got a few fish and the next thing you know people just heard. Not worth it with bad ice conditions for just a few fish.

I am willing to take my chances to get some slabs.

the report that i got from a guy that was out there watching the trucks fall, is that there front tires was the only thing that went in. Although the lake is only like 5 feet deep, still a scary feeling.

You want "slabs" you should be on URL, not around here.

Got a report from a buddy on Red, they stayed on the move and pulled up 1 crappie in 24 hours of hard fishing out of Hilman's. Couldn't keep the walleyes off the hook though, including a 26.5"er.

Then I talked to another buddy in the Hutchinson area and he said Cedar was on fire, he got a nice mess of crappie on Cedar early part of the week, with some fish over 14". I'm sure she's cooled down by now though.

Walleye's seem to be jumping up the hole like usual on Red, the crappies, you have to move to find them.

Story I heard were a few slabs and a few snakes. Not a ton of fish but the size may be worth the time. I think I'm going to take my son out there this weekend. I'll let you all know what we find.

I heard that Cedar is now open for netting due to the low oxygen content on the lake

I heard that rumor too, but haven't seen anything on the DNR website. But, Clear Lake isn't on there either and that was announced last week so your guess is as good as mine.

The ice isn't bad on cedar at all. The trucks went in because they didn't know where they were driving, they drove over a very shallow sand-rock bar and just the tires went in bc that's all the deeper it get there. They were catchin crappies out there last weekend when i was there and we got one that was almost 15 inches. Water is dirty.

Hey Limit, where on the dnr website do they list these lakes?

I have tried finding them a couple times and have had no success.

Thanks again, Hester

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/fishing/liberalized/index.html

As it says on that website, there should be signs posted if the lake is open to liberalized fishing. If there aren't any signs, I wouldn't want to harvest a bunch of fish based on just a rumor.

I realize it is a shallow lake, but are there decent spots on Cedar within walking distance? There are no depths shown on my gps. I might give it a try in a month or so when it warms up so I don't have to drag a house.

Thanks.

I see Round lake is on the "liberalized fishing" list. Ya know, I always wondered why the DNR spent money and improved the old access on that lake. If it is prone to freeze out, why spend the money ? I have never seen a fish/spear house on that lake much less anyone fishing it in the summer.

HEY all you "SPORTSMEN & WOMEN" if indeed that's what you call yourselves! Real sportspeople "WOULD NOT" leave there "TRASH" behind after spending time fishing!!!! Evidently you people don't have any respect for the waters or land. What do you think you are showing the next generation of sportsman? I know there where kids out on the ice that saw all the trash. Whoever the people were that left the trash starting from the access (CEDAR) to the North end of the lake should return and dispose of the trash the right way!!!! It's pretty sad when there are plastic trash bags filled with garbage and "FISH GUTS" that are left behind, what you can't wait til you get home to clean your catch? Not to mention all the beer cans, bottles and booze bottles left behind!!!! I often wonder is this the way you sportman are at your own homes and is this what you do when you go hunting too? Another issue is ALL you people that have to gain access to the lake crossing other landowners property! If you can't afford the gas to drive the 3.5 miles from the access how can you afford to fish??? Belle Lake is just as bad for garbage being left behind. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO ANYONE YOU KNOW THAT"S BEEN FISHING ON CEDAR LAKE! I'm proud to call myself a sportswoman.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.
    • delcecchi
      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it. 
    • Big Red Lodge
      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings
    • Big Red Lodge
      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
