Burt Lake near Indian River, Michigan
As the fourth biggest inland lake in Michigan Burt Lake is home to tons of fish including lots of small walleyes (most are less than 20 inches but there are a few big ones in here though), good numbers of smallmouth up to 20 inches, average pike, a few trout in the deep hole, nice panfish, and a few hard to catch muskies topping 40lbs. Because the lake is so big (17,120) I recommend trolling until you find out about where the fish are and then casting those kinds of areas. Some good spots to start out on are Dagwell Point, Greenman Point, Colonial Point, the drop offs and weedlines along the southern shore, the fish shelters near the weedlines at the north end of the lake, and the drop offs, weedlines, and shorelines on the windblown side of the lake. Tight Lines!
