I was out there with my boy tonight and had a couple bottom dwellers come thru but nothing on the lines. We were off the southwest point off the access. Anyone had any luck..I saw a couple nice slabs last weekend that came off cedar.

Fished wednesday afternoon/evening. Managed to coax a few 'eyes into biting amongst all the lookers, all of which were in the slot. The key for me seemed to be getting away from the community cribs to find any active fish. Had lots of sniffers in 15-18 FOW. The majority of the fish caught came on plastics believe it or not! ;)The bite should really start to pick up if we can continue to get some steady weather. Man, I can't believe how close they pack those permanent houses together over the cribs... It's crazy!! grin

Yep thats how it goes when that is the only structure out there on the lake!! Had the camera down a few weeks ago in the morning the crib was so packed with fish i couldn't even see through it and couldn't get them to even leave it 1 foot. There was a musky lurking around so that didn't help either.

Everyone seems to get along out there though not like on other lakes where i've seen numerous exchanges of words and almost fights!

Was out on sunday afternoon into early evening. Gills and crappies were very tight liped. Watched them on the camera with their bellys on the bottom with barley a fin movement or tucked way in the cribs. Might have just been from all the weekend activity also, not sure. Hoped on catching a few but no go.

Has anybody had any luck on Cedar lately? I went out a few times about a week ago and caught a few small crappies on the Northeast Cribs.

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
