Staining rough cedar decking 2/6s

I want to use a clear or semi-transparent penetrating stain on rough white cedar decking 2/6s. The decking material is unplaned and unsanded (so my 2/6s are actually 2/6s, not nominals). (I am not worried about splinters: the cedar is very soft.)I am interested in reactions/recommendation/experiences to applying deck stain to this rough wood (as likely problems, clear versus pigmented, etc.)

I ran a paint store up north for many years before I became a farmer's wife so let me give you a bit of what I learned . a clear stain with no uv protection will gray and dry out faster than a semi-solid will . You really have the right idea in sticking with the penetrating stain .Make sure the stain says it has uv protection.
