I was thinking about taking a trip down to do some bass fishing on union lake. I had heard at one point it was one of the best bass fishing lakes in the LP. Anybody got any insight on location? Bait selection? I know nothing about this lake....

Deepest part of the lake is only 10'. I start there first thing in the morning twilight with a black zara spook. Later on, a craw colored rattle trap or weighted tube (1/8 oz bullet weight). As the sun gets higher I move to the east end of the lake and either fish soft plastic around the edge of the weed mats or a scum frog on top...black scum frog.

Union Lake in what County? I live on Union Lake in Oakland County which gets to 105 fow in it's deepest spot. Good SM and LM bass numbers in the 2 to 4 lb range. Clear out by 11 am on the weekend or prepare for death by personal water craft.

Oh, I'm talking about Union Lake in northwestern Branch Co. Years ago they dammed the St Joseph River west of Union City, the result is Union Lake, hence the reason its so shallow.....lot of underwater structure though....Great lake for catfish & carp, bass fishing isn't too shabby either, and I'm sure there's walleye in it.
