Little Bay De Noc

The walleye bite is still going strong on Little Bay de Noc with lots of limits being caught. Utilizing a jig and live bait presentation in and around the Escanaba and Whitefish Rivers has still been putting lots of 15-20” walleye in the boat. Slowly trolling small crankbaits like the 2” Berkley Flicker Shad has also been producing good catches in the same areas. The bite off the Ford River was hit or miss but when the bite was on, good numbers of walleye were able to be found up shallow in the area west of the Ford towards Round Island. Try slowly trolling large stickbaits such as the Storm Thunderstick or casting jerkbaits like the Berkley Cutter 110 to put fish in the boat. Finding a rock to sand transition can be the key to putting fish in the boat. Smallmouth bass fishing has been good with many fish up in as shallow of water as a 2 feet or less. Try casting jerkbaits such as the Rapala Shadow Rap or Berkley Cutter 110 for a chance at a Bay De Noc bronze back. Working the pilings and rock at the mouth of the Ford River or along the west shoreline just north of Nelson’s Bay will surely put you on some fish.
