Mallard yes, but Busse? I've met people who swear there's fish in there that are worth the time, but have yet to see any. It's a great place to add to your collection of Modelo cans, crawler tubs, and other trash. If there was a ghetto for fishermen, Busse is it.
And DQ is where I nearly threw a thickly-accented bucketeer into the water for keeping an 11" or 12" walleye. The crappie action is almost decent on occasion, but that lake has been beaten to death the last 10 years. The Fox has outproduced it for me 10 to 1 or better. Pratt's Wayne is another choice, and there is a musky, maybe 2 in there.
Look hard for retention ponds, especially in industrial parks. Blackwell has spit out some good-sized wallys and Northern the past 2 years, but it also gets hammered and is a tough lake to fish.
