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...

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.

      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!

      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh?

      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.
