Response to Dave’s question. I fished Saturday and Sunday good 12 inches of Ice. Trucks were driving on the Ice from the South entry point. I walked out. No Ice is absolutely safe but it looked good to me. We have had a little warm up so I would check with local folks before going for it.

First time on this lake. No need for camera or vex as I could see to the bottom. I was able to watch as the fish come in and engulf the bait. I saw a really nice Pike come under the hole several times but could not get it to hit the crappie minnow and he would chase off the perch. Also had what I am pretty sure was a musky come in once it was a giant. I also picked up a jumbo on the tip up off a Pike minnow. I ended up with a nice meal of perch and released the majority of them. Great Lake I will be back.

Fishing was rough in the wind today... fished the hump out from Meister’s with no luck. Ice was pretty thick, but there was half an inch of ice above two inches of water resting on top of the 12” of ice. Made walking difficult and a little sketchy, but I had a good time.
Tight lines y'all!
All of the lakes in our general area (Cedar, Big Round, Church, etc) are fished pretty heavy so Walleye will be scarce. I don't think we have any natural reproduction, and if we do it's most likely a fluke. Fish the deep edge of the cribs and always an inch or two off the bottom. Stay safe and tight lines.
Muskyman 172 Walleye's are pretty sporadic, I've had the best luck toward evening to dark in that same area you were at. If you don't have the Navionics app for your phone you should download that. It has a pretty detailed map of depths and structure for Cedar on there. Hope that helps, good luck!

Fished the south west cribs on 12/25/18 caught some nice crappies and perch. Does any one have any input on where to find walleyes or point me in the general direction. Been out a few times tried jigging/tip ups with no luck.
