My teenage sons have acquired a 12' alu fishing boat and would like to expand their horizons. We live in Davison about 2 mile west of Potters Lake. They have been on Holloway, Mott, Potter, Nepessing.

Any suggestion for other local lakes that they can put the boat on.:fish:

Just my two cents.....since you live in Davison, I wouldn't waste the gas to go to Buell Lake. The fishing there just isn't that great. If the boat isn't that heavy, they may want to consider the old Timber Wolf campground off Irish Road. It's close to you and there are fish there. I have a 22 inch largemouth from there to prove it. It also has tons of bluegill and Pike. It doesn't have a boat launch, but I am thinking that they should be able to carry the boat the short distance from the parking lot to the water.

Any of the bodies of water in the old Timber Wolf campground are good fisheries.

Question..... I live in Davison also. Not far from the old Timberwolve campground. Can you fish from shore from those lakes there or would I need a small boat or kayak?

You can fish from shore in the ponds at the Timberwolf. Look at Twin, Watts, and Cedar lakes in Lapeer State game area also. Those three are perfect for small boats.

You guys that fish the ponds at the old timberwolf, what are u using for baits to catch pike, bass and gills? I took my boy there today and we got skunked. I was just using spinnerbaits and powerbait grubs. Any advice would be great. I also plan to go across the road to the flint river and give that a try too. Thanks!
