Anybody been out lately? Are they done eating all the shad yet? Thinking of pulling crawlers with my son saturday
Heidecke Lake, Grundy County
I was out Monday April 2. About 10 boats were out and nobody caught a lick(1 guy caught a crappie). I was using 3 way with Flicker shad from 6 ft to 20 feet. Marked scattered fish from 11 - 17 ft however: there was a guy Musky fishing and said he boated a 24 incher and had several sightings on opening day Sunday

Report for 8/26/17
Caught a 5.6 pound, 24.5 inch catfish. Wasn't my goal but a good catch on a large minnow.
Cool day but hot sun, slightly cool breeze. Slow bite. This is not a free & open lake. It's micromanaged and fenced off along the entire lake with the exception of a doorway for anglers to walk through. And up a hill. The shoreline is covered in cut rocks, with no shade. So you will cook on sunny summer days. Bring your hat, bug spray, and skin protection.
Boaters have to enter 17 minutes away. And this is where GPS sends you, if you are not a boater you will have to follow the sparse signs and figure out where to fish the banks.
With the exception of the catfish I didn't really enjoy this place. The anglers were loud, and very talkative. Voices carried along the lake. I noticed the quiet anglers got fish.
Hey guys. Anyone knows if the lake is open and if so, what the conditions are. Any info helps. Just trying to get out tomorrow. All the rivers are flooded so thought about doing some catch and release here. Thanks for the help if you can
