Late report...fished Cedar twice this week early and late. Lots of bait everywhere. Huge schools of minnows or young of year fish everywhere I fished. Several musky seen coming up swirling. School of white bass off the point straight out from Jackeliens. Crappies off the deeper cribs, along with nice sunnies on plastics. Weed lines not as productive now for me, but bass are active on jig/crawler. Got a northern each time, too on crawler. Lots of little perch and small sunnies on the weeds. Lake is getting green but not as bad as some years.

I was out a couple of times this week. Lake is getting green again. Lots of crappies everywhere but they are smallish. Sunnies very active. Lots of musky guys out. Walleye here and there along weeds. I have been looking for perch but only finding small ones. Lots and lots of boats on nice days.
Anyone fish Cedar lately?

Fished on Sat out here. Tried fishing for walleye in the south west corner and we were not alone. Did not catch any or even see anybody catching any so we switched to crappies. Caught lots of those on jigs. Mostly 7-10 inches, no real big ones but plenty of em. Got two white bass also. Tossed those back. Got a bonus muskie Bear the end of our trip. Probably about 36 inches, just a solid fat fish. Put up a heck of a fight on walleye gear. Will try this lake again sometime but would def like to get into the walleyes.

Fished crib site 4. 1-4pm caught and released a dozen fish, blue gills and bass. They were hanging tight to the cribs. We used aqua views, I prefer them on cribs. Only wheelers, snowmobiles and walking.
I walked out a few minutes ago just to check ice depth. Only walked out about 100 yards or so. East side of the lake. Drilled two holes and both had 12 inches of ice but not trusting that too much. Guys are taking out small four wheelers but haven’t seen anything larger. No snow on the lake. Use cleats.

Went out Saturday morning for a few hours on the north end. There was about 4 inches of clear ice everywhere I drilled. Fished 22-25FOW caught about a dozen small crappie 8-9inches. I didn't see many fish on the sonar holding to the cribs on the north and east side of the lake. Lots of people on the southwest bay.
