Any action going on? Would like to get my boys out for crappies / 'gils. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Have not fished Big Cedar before.

Lots of big gills while targeting walleye in the south basin. Fishing weed edges in 15 - 20 fow with leeches. Slow year for walleye in the south basin for us in general. How's the north basin been producing for walleye this year? In gerenal, do y'all prefer the north or south basin for walleye? Our place in on the south basin, so we prefer to try there out of convenience. Feel free to send a PM.

Fished 8:30-noon today with Boogie. Only needed to hit two spots. We each took home about ten panfish (bluegill and pumpkinseed).
We released 14 bass, kept two for a fish fry. Caught and released one walleye and had a boat side release of a nice northern pike who decided to keep my Yamamoto Senko as a souvenir. That grinner also kept my red hook so it will have some bling on the lip if anyone else catches her.
Fish were in the weed beds in 8-14 feet of water. As usual fishing with crawler chunks, senkos and Havoc plastic minnows. As usual, fighting with Boogie was a blast.
On the way in we noticed a boat parked on the landing pier for quite a while. When they finally pulled her out of the lake it looked like the boat ended up on the pavement of the ramp. I hope there was no damage and that all were O.K.

Soaked small suckers for NP and caught this dandy LB. Unfortunately she inhaled the bait/hook and was not able to survive. Would have loved to have let her go but upon a couple quick pics after cutting the steel leader in half she was already belly up. Tried for 25 minutes to get her going. She blasted away 3 times and after about 20 seconds was belly up on the surface. Sucks she didn't survive. :-(
I have fished big cedar a handful of times over my 64 years. Talked a fellow retiree who doesn't fish into going with me on Tuesday early am looking to catch enough bluegill and crappie for a meal along with an experience to interest him into wanting to fish again. Without giving any away any hot spot where would you suggest we start, west shore middle of lake etc? Minnows needed for crappie
Any info would be appreciated, thank you

Had the good fortune to fish Big Cedar Friday. My first trip since my left hip was replaced June 13th.
Fished 6AM to 9:40 AM. We caught a limit of bluegills to eat. Caught and released five bass, one northern, one walleye, and several perch. Kept on crappie in addition to my 10 bluegills.
Crawler chunks right up in the weeds worked.
