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!

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.
