Unless you’ve had a rod ripped into the water while fishing off the bank or had something destroy your crappie rig, you may not know there’s a pretty cool – and big - fish swimming at Worster Lake.
The hybrid striped bass – also known as a wiper – has been stocked in the Potato Creek State Park for eight years but darn few anglers fish for them.

The DNR closed off Eagle Lake parking due to complaints from Ontwa Township officials but it had nothing to do with anglers.
The entrance to the grassy DNR property was blocked by large boulders a week ago, placed there by the Michigan DNR after townships officials threatened citing them for an ordinance violation.
“This had nothing to do with fishermen,” said Leroy Krempec, township planning commission administrator. “It was the general public that was causing problems.”
The grassy lot, which the DNR owns and intends to develop as a parking area for boaters, has been open for boat and trailer parking since the DNR purchased the land nearly four years ago.
However, litigation filed by the Eagle Lake Improvement Association to prevent construction of a new boat ramp across from the parking area has put the project on hold.
The lot has remained undeveloped and has been discovered by Eagle Lake beachgoers, many of who have caused problems along Eagle Lake Road during nighttime and weekends.
Krempec said as many as 60 cars have been counted in the lot and litter has become a major problem.
