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.
Jason - 2 walleye
Augy - 3 smallmouth bass
Tony - 4 walleye
