Cedar Lake in Fall-Mid October
Pick the worse day to try to figure the fish out on Cedar Lake-however fish were caught. I only had a half day to figure out what the fish were doing and where they would be. The day was breezy, a bluebird day in fall, water temps in the lake were 56 degrees, colder along the shore. Milfoil was dying and laying flat on the bottom in most cases. Found the pike to be following, just being curious but not too aggressive. Largemouths were a soft bite with the exception of one that violently hit a soft plastic. Started fishing the tapered cabbage and milfoil that was still erect in 9 to 12 feet. Fished soft plastic with only a few bites, switched to a chatterbug with a slow retrieve and started to bang soem nice largemouths, the largest was just over 4lbs, the smallest at 2 1/4 lbs. Many pike were following but only being curious. Caught 3 pike, largest being 8lbs. Winds picked up, the bite slowed down, flipped a jig for a few casts, caught one LMB 2 1/2 lbs. Went back to creature baits, hit a few more in 10 feet. The deepest part of the lake is around 15 feet. The end of the day, caught enough fish to feel sated, considering the bright sky and breeze, it was not a bad half day.
