"Bull" by Peter Welmerink

One often has to work for others to survive. It's no less for Joe Cross, working within the confines of Reganshire as an Urban Salvage Engineer. Dealing with folks internally is no problem. It's when he needs to go outside the town enclosure, into the Wilds, where things get dicey. The feral undead roaming field, road, and decimated countryside can be the least of one's worries. On a mission to acquire a map of northern Michigan, where supposed "treasures" can be found, Joe barely gets up-road before running into trouble. Becoming mixed up with a few fellow Reganite soldiers after the ill-fated "Battle of Lamont," they become stomping targets for a mutated and monstrously large creature they all thought had been run out of the area. Nope. Still there.

They said Green Lake was safe… 
They were dead wrong!!! 
Seven years ago, Green Lake was the site of several unexplained killings. After a local war hero captured one of the monsters responsible for the chaos (a giant mutant Lake Sturgeon), the military arrived to protect the citizenry. Despite government assurances, residents fled in droves. Green Lake became a ghost town. 
 Inspired by the best-selling book, Hollywood produced the blockbuster movie Green Lake Monsters near the lake. Thousands who worked on the film fell in love with the area and settled en mass. Eager to capture potential tourist dollars, the Village of Green Lake embraced its monstrous past. 
When teenage lovers vanish, newer residents scoff at the notion the creatures have returned. This time, Vietnam veteran Silas Sobel is prepared, and sets in motion a plan he hoped would never see the light of day. 
 In a battle to the death between mankind and mutant fish, only one will prevail as head of the food chain.
