Is there winter access to Herde Lake? I went to the access point on the LL map and it looked private.

No trouble driving out on the Northeast end of the lake but you need to be careful on where you drive on this lake. Tried all afternoon in a deep basin and never marked a fish. Caught some small gills and rock bass off of a crib and one small walleye. The 18" minimum size limit will hopefully improve the walleye size in this lake but it's still hard to catch many walleyes over that mark. The gill population is improving in this lake but the size is still small compared to many lakes.

I have never fished long before but have heard there are some nice crappies in this lake. Im not looking for coordinates, but could someone give me a general depth range to start at or where to try? Any info would be much appreciated!
