A lot of sunscreen and patience. Heidecke is an interesting place for sure. The most coveted shore spots are by the bridge. Everyone will rush there at opening. You can certainly catch fish anywhere though, but it can be very hit or miss. The best baits seem to be cut-bait and chicken livers - even for the game fish. Everytime i've seen shore fisherman carrying out a stringer of hybrids and catfish, it's always with cut-bait and chicken livers.
