Fished Big Cedar for the first time from about 6:30am to noon on Sunday (8/1/2021). We were targeting Northern, Bass, and Walleye. Not the best day of fishing but it was a beautiful day on the water. We fished about every part of the lake except for most of the south bay, the wind was just too much.
We were able to catch a few of each target species, but none were really that big. I was able to bring up and release two walleye (16.5" and 17.5") in about 25-35 feet of water. I was bottom bouncing a 1oz (4.5" long) plastic paddle tail swimbait. It was a rather large bait but the walleye I was able to bring up hammered it. One hit on a gold and brown color, and the other hit on a hot pink and white color.
Fishing shallow for bass and northern was not very productive. I would have liked to spend more time targeting walleye but we spent a lot of time in shallower water looking for northern and bass. Just about every artificial bait type was used and we only caught a few bass and a two small northern.
