cedar lake

Recommended Posts

had a friend form kansas visit this summer and wanted to fish a "childhood memory" as his parents used to take them to morningside resort on cedar lake. it was early august and were lucky enough to catch 17", 18" and 19" walleyes as the sun set. anyway, looking for some advice on whether it would be worth returning this fall as the map sure looks like it holds some classic fall structure. thanks for the help!!

My 'rents live on Cedar, I fished it everyday through in the summers with the folks. I know that early fall is amazing on the windward side of the lake in the shallows after dark. The numbers have really decreased since the muskie numbers are rising at an incredible rate. Try the mid lake rock piles and steep drops and you'll pick up a few! Hope that helps!

thanks matty. we'll see what this weather does and hopefully can return to cedar this fall. the lake looks like minnetonka in the cities but without all the boats and bikini's. it's hard to concentrate on fishing with all that "talent" floatin' around. lastly, does cedar get much ice fishing pressure? thanks again. blue

You are right about a lot of your post, but wrong about one thing! The boats and bikinis mid-summer are amazing. Trust me, they are thick and beautiful. It does resemble Minnitonka, that's why the bassin' is so good, just like Minn. Ice fishing Cedar doesn't see a lot of action. It's a tough lake through the ice unless you know it well. Also it is spring fed so it's dangerous as heck! Good luck and let me know how you do!

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
