There used to be one on Lorenzo Road. It was open last year I believe. Really nice people. I'll see if I can find the info.
As for bait, "cut bait" is the absolute most popular bait at Heidecke. Every time you see someone walking away with a huge stringer of fish, they were almost all caught on cut bait. Hybrids, catfish, etc.
