Regulation update on Red Cedar

9 posts in this topic

Any idea what the slot size might be this year on Red Cedar? If it is anything like last year, I might have to find a new lake for the trip with my brother and Dad.....Probably wouldn't do switch lakes, but I am still interested in case anyone has heard? we caught a lot of 15"-16" walleyes last year

Was there a slot last year? I thought they had just raised the min from 15 to 18"?

You need to figure out how to catch the bigger eyes, not find a different lake wink

I had heard that it was a 3 year deal to begin with and then they would look at the effects and go from there.

Cooter, would that involve less beer? If so, I am not sure we would be capable of that. On a serious note, we will probably still be at the camp ground this june. I really like the lake and there never seems to be people fishing it (unless you run into the bass tourney) and there never seems to be a problem with jet ski's and wake board boats. Oh wait, I mean there is a terrible problem with the crowding of boats on Red Cedar, people should go somewhere else.........

I've done better on the Red with an ample amount of beer. Even if the eyes don't cooperate, which they usually do in June, the smallies and gills are still a blast.

we have never targeted the gills, but the three monsters I caught last year means we will try this year, but that requires more beer

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
