Default Re: 2011 Trips Pics / Second Day Nice Smallies

Went out to Heidecke today...nice day but a little too sunny, no cloud cover and not crazy about northeast wind...rather have a SSW fishing from shore. Oh well

Got out around 11a.m. brought some nightcrawlers with the intent of live bait rigging for walleyes. Caught catfish and stripers on nightcrawlers....threw artificials
for stripers caught walleyes and smallmouth go figure

Not used to having so many people fish far out on the center dike. When it was a power plant lake just about everyone hung around the bridge and I'd have the whole center
dike up to the limit just about to myself during the week.

Water clarity perfect but low...not too dirty not too clear just the way I like it.

Bringing in lots of slimy moss from bottom...I'm guessing the clear water from the zebra mussels is allowing moss to grow deeper these days

Not a whole heck of a lot of people out....maybe 12-15 cars shore access and the few boats spread out.

No carp up shallow yet...too cold still.





Catfish was hungry...had green sunfish in his throat.
