Heidecke Lake Fishing Report: 5/6/06

Postby JasonN » May Sat 06, 2006 8:48 pm

Shore fished Heidecke Lake from 6:30am-1pm. Temps in mid 40's-mid 50's sunny, very light NE winds.

Got there at the gate opening and secured a spot under the the southwest corner of the bridge. Minnows produced small walleye 10"-14", and 2 smallnouth bass 13.5" and 14". One smallmouth bass was caught on a Rapala X-Rap. The best walleye method was the minnows right off the bottom.

Another angler 30 yards down caught a 15+ pound hybrid striped bass on cut bait (sliced up bluegill).

Reports from around the lake were very slow. One guy on the north side of the dyke by the bridge had several small-medium hybrids on medium roaches/crawlers.

Total catch:
Jason - 2 walleye
Augy - 3 smallmouth bass
Tony - 4 walleye

Nice :) Looks like a beautiful day to be out. Maybe next time one of y'all will hook into a big hybrid ;-)

It was nice to get out again to Heidecke. We'll be better prepared next time and have a better idea how to get on them stipers. Good times. We'll switch music from the 80's to the 90's at the next outing. :wink:
