Andys right... Lots of pan fish in the Lake.

If your in the area of West Bay there are a couple of really big weedy bays that hold just about anything but especially perch, sunnies, rock bass, pikes and largies.

Muskrat Bay
Jennings Point

are a couple of places to start...lots of structure and lots of fish.

good luck

I believe they have netted the odd black crappie, but never heard of one being caught. No bluegill, just sunfish (pumpkinseed)... they'll be just about anywhere there's weeds. Rock bass aeound docks and rocky shorelines. Small perch seem to be just about everywhere.

Small pike and smallmouth can give some steady action if you find the right spot!
