The thing to do is go back over last years reports-or the first ones this year after ice-and make a list of potentials. Then go for a drive on a weekend and see how everything is. Access,action,parking...walk out and talk to people but don't just stop and fish at the first good looking place. Put some Miles on the vehicle...and then you'll KNOW instead of simply having been told of a spot.
Bring binocs and a lake access map.
There's clusters of lakes in Waukesha Washington and Racine counties where several spots are within a short drive of each other. Some offer bigger but fewer fish,some are better "action" lakes.
Or hell-just go to lower Genesee.
