Heading up the first week of September. I grew up fishing Rice Lake and really don't know Red Cedar very well. Any suggestions? Pike, bluegills, crappie don't really care. Just need some time alone in a boat and hopefully some fish. Thanks,

Just got back from a cottage on Red Cedar Lake. Will go again. Fantastic Blue Gill Fishing. All fish very clean, no black spots. Got 6 that weighed a pound-10 inches. A few crappies and perch and smallies. Didn't try for eyes but so them caught. Connects to Balsam Lake, just as good I was told. Next year two weeks. Can't get over the size of gills on this lake-any place along weedy shorelines. I used flys for all of the fish.
Trying this lake for the first time this weekend. Not looking for your fishing spots, just general advice on what works on this lake and the type of structure to look for. Just looking to catch a few fish (panfish, bass, walleyes). Feel free to message me if you want.
Thanks in advance

I have a group of 8 coming up the weekend of the 28th. How is full size truck travel looking? Or should we bring the wheeler?
Any info will help. Thanks tight lines!
Anyone been out? People driving trucks out yet? Looking to head up next week. Thanks
The Rice Lake High School Fishing Team will be hosting our 2nd Annual Community Ice Fishing Contest on the Red Cedar Chain on February 8th from 9am-3pm. All money raised will go to the team to buy gear and to travel to the state tournament the following weekend. We also use money raised for community service projects on area lakes and rivers.
Anyone venture out yet? Wondering if it is safe to walk off on the east shore landing. Thanks for any info.
Dbuchmann- There is no lake at the intersection of HWYs V&M, but you could ketch a buzz there at the V and M Bar! I’m guessing your referring to the launch that Stout Island uses to ferry their guests to and from the main land located at 28th Ave and HWY 48. I lived on the lake for from 2013-2017 and during that time the launch was open to the public to use, so I think you guys will be good to go!
Does anyone know if the landing at V & 48is open for access during the winter? The Rice Lake High School Fishing team (I'm the coach) wants to host a community contest out there this year instead of on Rice Lake but didn't know what access is open and would be best for people to access it.
