Actually leaf lake near Big C has been doing pretty well from what I hear. A lot of people talk about Detroit Lake, but I don't know where to go there.

F-Dog or Dead should help us there.

anywhere there's houses on Little Detroit will work. I'm sure someone out has to have a better spot than little d?

How 'bout West Lost lake? I've done ok in 15 fow, nothing huge but 7-8 inchers can be caught.

Why's that? I can say the same thing about 10 different lakes in the area; Lida, Little Detroit, Prarie, Middle C, just to name a few. All have been good and fish have been between 12-17 fow. Small glow/silver swedish pimple with a waxie has been my bait of choice. Some crappies have been found in the deeper (25-35 ft) water.

If you're looking to just get on fish for the kids to catch, Little Detroit will give you all the little sunnies you can muster. Almost any lake in the area will allow this, just have to find a pocket in the weeds. It's just easier to find them on Little D.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
