I fished Cedar Lake for the first time on a very windy day on 9/27. I thought it was one of the prettiest lakes of its size I have ever been on. I even met a very nice Musky fishernman from Illinois at the landing. Is this lake considered a pretty good fishing lake or just nice to look at? We caught a few bass and pike. Bass is my favorite species but how is the walleye and Bass fishing on that lake?

This is a very good multi-specie lake, and yes it is very pretty.

Bass, Pike, Crappies, Sunnies, Walleyes...they are all there in decent numbers, and size as well.

You may have hit it at a bad time, but I would suggest you don't overlook this body of water in the future, as the fishing can be as good as the scenery. smile.gif

My folks live out there and I've fished it for over 12 years now, it's a great lake, but it takes time to learn. The walleye out there are a great average size, but tougher to find, and the muskie are thick. Crappies are great out there if you know where to look. Pike and bass, all day my friend, go nuts!

Question:

I have fished cedar a few time during the soft water, exclusively for muskies. Saw quite a few pigs but no biters...anyways was wondering how the ice fishing was on this lake (especially how the early ice is.) Not looking for spots but more of how the ice forms (there is a lot of deep water and neckdown areas that may take a while to freeze) Fish the area alot during first ice and this is one lake i would like to get out on..

Thanks for any info....

Sorry for the late reply, I rarely check back here, though I should more often as it's my former stomping grounds, and I'm there monthly on an outdoor excursion.

Cedar in the Winter is great, but it took us years to figure it out. You can fish with the crowds and catch little crappies all day, but you REALLY need to search if you're going to do well. There are a lot of points and deep holes that hold fish, and good numbers.

You're right, the freeze is weak in spots on the lake, though I see crazies driving across it all year long out my folks' window. I would take caution and use a 4 wheeler or better yet, walk! A wheeler went through there 2 years ago mid-winter.

Anyway, good luck, and if you decide to try it shoot me an e-mail, I can give you some spots to start and maybe even hit the ice with you.

Hey Matt, thanks alot for the input. I spent the last 2 years fishing Farm Island for first ice (basically the whole month of december) and have had good success. Cedar seems to have alot of the same features so i am hoping to put what i have learned from that lake and apply it to cedar (mainly targeting eyes) I will keep you in mind once the water starts thickening up there and possibly send some questions your way (the boat isn't put away yet so i am going to try some soft water fishing up there next weekend.)

...keep 'er in the strike zone...

I don't know if I'm too late, but I just returned from there, and my dad tells me the fish are biting. Shoot me an e-mail and I'll tell you where on Cedar to hit anything you want. He's been pulling cranks for muskie and monster 'eyes.

Just a hint on the lake, once you see some dead fish belly up on the lakeshore, start pulling cranks deep, real deep...

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
