Hi, I have fished this lake a bunch, but have never heard of yellow perch being caught. Do you mean yellow bass? There are nice yellow bass, though not as many as there use to be. Was there a stocking of perch?

That's exactly my experience on Heidecke. Not at all familiar with techniques need for this body of water for pan fish. Spent most of my time in northern MN fishing.

report is from May-24

started late to miss the rain....found the wind...ran the new "Bird" and tried to dial in the auto-chart(live mapping) feature....seeing a ton of fishable structure....drops...roadbeds...rock piles....very interesting lake that I don't spend enough time on for sure....crappie run bigger than shab...not the same kinda animal ...no cribs or standing timber to go by....the fish relate to things,just not things I'm used to fishing...LOL...

Went out from 4:30 - 8:00 and had little luck I caught three yellow perch which beats getting skunked but was hoping for something better. First time on the lake so I guess we did ok. Drifted crawlers by the buoy line on the south side 10 foot depth seemed to get the best results drifted over 20 feet and seen lots of marks on graph they just were not interested.

Pick your day to fish (if you can). Weekdays with low lying clouds and prefrontal conditions are best. Throw in some sw winds at 5-15 mph and it's even better. Fish the wind blown shores with # 4 Shadraps or # 5 Flickershads (casting parallel to shore) in silver and firetiger. There are breaks off of the south side of the center dyke of pool #1. You can troll on the breaks focusing in an up and down (zig zag pattern) or troll right over the tops of the different breaks. I have found that if I pop a fish on 1 crank, I quickly switch the other rod over. The bite window can be very quick based on wind speed and direction. Troll for a short period longer. If the bite dies on the same color, switch the other rod back to original crank color. It is not rocket science out there. On Good Friday, I had a 40 inch muskie hit a # 5 Flickershad and then pull the planer board under. There can be some interesting drama out there at times.

Arsteve,

There is very little structure in Heidecke, I personally have had the most luck trolling. Follow the shore lines 5-10 feet out use small crank baits (white seems to work). If you don't wanna troll get some minows. Heidecke can get rough real quick, if you have a smaller boat make sure you watch the wind and lake flags.

Hi fellow fisherman! I'd like to reach out to the experienced and seasoned fisherman and ask if there are any tips or techniques that work well. Im not looking to catch a specific type of fish. Just want to take my girlfriend out and enjoy ourselves. Also, are there certain periods/months of the year that the fishing is better? I greatly appreciate the help! Thanks!
