Tawas Lake is very shallow and weedy but I hear it is good pike, bass and blue gill. Never fished it except in the winter. I would probably look at Foote or Cooke Ponds on the AuSable River west of Oscoda. Good small mouth, pike and some walleye. I like to launch below Cooke Dam on the upper part of Foote and fish for small mouth. It is a gravel launch but 2 wheel drive will work unless you have a bigger boat. Be careful for stumps.

Several small lakes west of Tawas at Sand Lake area, and I know one or two have public launches. Check the stocking records on the DNR site, but I know there is some good fishing in those lakes.

Cooke Dam Pond of the Au Sable can be excellent for largemouth, smallmouth and pike. Have not had huge success with large pike but the numbers are there.

Hey HFT,


Sage Lake in Ogemaw County is about 25 minutes away (M-55-Sage Lake Road). I post reports every couple of weeks from Sage. I'm sure you can search them on this site. Send me a PM if you want a lake contour map with "spots" marked on it. I made it for some anglers new to the lake/area a few years back.

Hey Agapeace,

I sent you a PM with a lake map with "spots" attached. This time last week the pike were lined up along the southwest? drop off leading into the bay where Kenyon's is located. I threw a 3/8 oz. bluegill colored spinnerbait and caught several over 24". Still, with Sage you will catch many more "unders." Good luck!
