You know how if you look on google maps, north of Novi, there's a bunch of lakes from commerce twp all the way to pontiac in places like west bloomfield, waterford, etc? Which ones are the best for fishing and access and where can you access them? Most all of them have DNR launch sites, but can you fish off of them? That have that wooden structure, a dock thing, maybe, and it says no swimming, no sunbathing, but can you fish off of it? I saw some people fishing at the orchard lake one the other day. I was at cass lake the other day and had no luck, not at dodge state park, but at this other park on the southwestern corner of the lake nearing orchard lake. Today, I found the public access site (DNR launch) on wolverine lake by the municipal building on Glengary Road, but is that any good? Also, I heard whitmore lake was good for crappie, but can you catch them from the DNR launch site which I discovered was on the north shore the other day? I see some of the sites are mentioned in the southeast michigan fishing guide (this booklet you can find at walmart, but I didn't buy but flipped through it at times to look at where the public access is) but a lot of these lakes also in washtenaw/livingston counties further west near ann arbor or west of ann arbor also have good fishing, but just like the west bloomfield lakes, aren't public save for a few spots. Which areas are best for fishing over there? my internet access is being truncated, so I'll continue this message later.
