cedar lake

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!

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
