Pleasant Lake near Waterford, Michigan
I grew up fishing pleasant lake and learned how to fish from its shores. In all those years I never saw a single brook trout, salmon or smallmouth bass pulled from its waters. The lake does however have a healthy population of largemouth bass and some huge northern pike. The many bluegill, sunfish, crappie and even a few yellow perch are great for the kiddos.
