Busse is a frustrating body of water. I live 5 minutes down the road and fish twice a week, and I won't hit Busse mid summer. It's too damn frustrating. If you're dead set on heading there again this might help:
1:When you're fishing near the damn troll the drop off directly across from the big fishing pier area. Troll small cranks in 8-12' FOW and run them around 6-8' deep.
2:If you're looking for good bass the best area is a spot the locals call Clearwater bay. It's the northeastern most part of the lake just south of Higgins rd. The weeds will be really thick right now, but you can get a scum frog or a Carolina rigged senko to work back there for sure.
3:Early morning you can find bass all along the fallen timber not too far from the boat launch in the main lake. Again, Carolina or wacky rigged senko works the best.
Your best bet is to hit the lake in early spring when the bite is on. You'll catch a grab bag of species and there's decent size too. Early season they'll hit just about anything, but by this time the weeds are thick and the fishing is sketchy at best.
