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"?

Yep you're right, Minnesota is the king of slots......SO, any word on them dropping the minimum this year or do we need to find a new lake?>

you won't see it change any time soon as it was just implemented.

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

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
