The reason I gave keesus 5 stars is not for it's fishery, it's for it's quality. The water is very clear, it's got the perfect amount of vegetation, it's got beautiful houses on it, and it has perfect topography. Plus on top of that you can catch a few decent bass. If you want a decent day on the water. Go to keesus.

One of the best inland perch lakes I ever fished. Walleye are not in huge numbers but some have come out with real trophy potential.
