Fished the North side today from 12-5. Not a typical outing for me as I had the family with me including 3 little ones. Not ashamed to admit that I got smoked. Kids and wife were dragging night crawlers on the bottom as we were drifting while I was chunking everything in my box. They managed a total of 19 strippers and Walleye to my one stripper. None of the strippers had much size but we did manage 3 legal walleye (all of which are still swimming tonight). Fish seemed to all come between 6-9 FOW. DNR was nice enough to meet me at the ramp for a full inspection and stated that everyone coming in reported a very slow day. Hope this is able to help someone. Tight lines and God Bless Boys.

Is there anywhere to rent a boat on Heidecke? I haven't been out there in 15 years and I am trying to find somewhere to take my 5 and 7 year old fishing from a boat. Thanks for the info.

Walleye Will 16, Some guys troll and others drift/vertical jig. If you troll keep your speeds down below 2mph. Experiment with crankbaits, I've caught them on Shad Raps, Flicker Shads, Thundersticks, Bombers and Strike Kings. When drifting, crawler harness/Lindy Rig or bottom bouncer. Bass Pro has a blade change system developed by Keith K. and Gary Parsons. Again experiment with colors. Jigging, 1/8 - 1/4 oz, plastic tail or not, live bait - YES.

Good Luck and see you out there.

For those of you who fish Heidecke regularly, what would you tell someone new to the lake? I typically fish the North Woods for Walleye and I know this lake is very different. I will be fishing from a boat. Thanks.

Conditions: Raining
Out Sunday . Rain in the morning partly cloudy afternoon. We were able to get under the bridge due to low water conditions. Caught a mixed bag of fish. 24 short walleyes (15-15 3/4), one nice stripper (20") One 11 " white crappie and three nice small mouths and some of the biggest sheep head I have seen in awhile. All caught on Lindy Rigs with worms. All in all a good day on the lake. DNR was out doing there job. Checked each and every boat coming off the lake. Good to see them out there.

On the lake yesterday from 2-7pm. Very windy out of the southwest. Saw water temps from 57 to 61. We had limited success catching 1 nice striper and 2 walleyes. Talked to others who did better. We pulled leeches and minnows for our catches but others trolled or casted lures for their fish. Many boats out yesterday . Fishing should really take off here soon !
