Fished yesterday morning. They are applying alum again so some congestion at the landing for next two weeks but not too bad. I caught lots of sunnies, some were really nice. Crappies, of course, bass, smaller perch, and only one small eye. People are catching sunnies from shore, too. Lots of panfish active now out from weed edges to 12 ft or so. Crawlers and leeches. I did not keep any fish. They are dumping the alum in deepest part of the lake this time I was told.

Crappies everywhere. Weed edges have huge schools of them. Even off the dock you can see them. Problem is they aren't the biggest. Very clear water.
Someone posted on Facebook that the north landing is now floating ice 30 feet out from shore. Not useable. South landing might be useable for a short time.
Still some good sized shacks out on the ice but the north landing is really deteriorating. With sun and temperatures this weekend they better be getting their shacks off the ice. Just my opinion.
How is the landing and ice holding up on cedar? Are they still driving out?
I avoid this lake because it gets so much pressure. People treat this lake like an amusement park/town dump. You will see people driving their trucks like they are in a Nascar race or just leave trash on it after they fish on it.
If you do want to fish on it get there at like 5 or 6 AM.
I took a ride around Cedar Yesterday. In my 23 years of being on the lake I’ve never seen so many fisherman and ice shacks on the lake. IMHO it must be getting over-fished this year. COVID related?
I was out off the south end last Wed morning and observed about 10-12" of ice. I did see a 1/2 ton pickup driving on the ice near the shore on the west side...and a few tracks from a jeep sized vehicle out by the cribs. That being said, I parked my 3/4 ton on the southwest bay and walked from there.
I see your report says 12 inches off ice anyone been out lately to see if this has improved? I heard trucks were driving out there but that doesn't mean it is safe and that's an educated decision. Cedar has turned into the home of the 6-9 inch crappies amazing how many are in that lake that size.

Fished northeast area yesterday. Lots of 9” crappies but that’s about it. Nothing bigger. Quite a few anglers out considering it was middle of the week.
