Thompson Lake near Howell, Michigan
You can find lots of small bass, average panfish, and good numbers of pike averaging a nice 28 inches in 262 acre Thompson Lake. If that interests you enough to actually go fishing here I recommend you try fishing around the island, the points, and the weedlines/drop offs around the 3 separate deep holes. In the spring the much shallower east end of the lake will hold the fish. Tight Lines!
