Great Lake! I love fishing Wabasis! Great for Largemouth Bass! There are a lot of rock bass as well as pike, bullheads and all the panfish you could ever want. You might run into a Bowfin or 2 fishing for bass. Bluegill, sunfish or perch patterned spinnerbaits and crankbaits fished along the outside of weed lines do really well for bass.
