Little & Big Bay De Noc
Greetings, I'm going to be coming to the bays area in October and would like to do some pike fishing. Is the beginning or end of the month the best bet? Any other tips greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Can anyone give a report as to how the salmon/trout fishing has been in the area.
Whaleback shoal or elsewhere?
I've heard of some fish caught of rock island/washington island so I was curious if there has been any bite within the bay?
Ijq1984, if you're talking about Little Lake right outside Gwinn then call or stop at https://m.facebook.com/gwinnbaitandtackle/ they can tell you all about the lakes in that area.
I know this is for bay de noc, but Im curious if anyone has fished little lake in Marquette county. I’m coming up and camping there at the end of August and I can’t find any reports on that lake. I’d like to target perch and walleye. Is there certain live or plastic baits that work good? Or jigs?
thanks in advance

We fished all day on 7/22 for Smallmouth...Covered all areas from the Whitefish River, Sand edges down the east shoreline south to Hunters Point.Fished from the south edge of the Days River mud all the way to Butlers Island...two Pike...total!
Toughest Bass bite I've seen in 30 years...but the good news is there are zillions of Gobies...We snagged several dragging tubes.Water clarity was muddy... I'll wait until Sept to return.
Fished 7-12 to 7-15 fishing very slow lots of small perch and Pike but had a great time,one nice 36" Pike right before we quit,could not find any eyes bigger than 11 inches,big bug hatch going on also

Fished Big Bay on 6-30. Was only able to catch 3 small smallmouth. Fished from garden peninsula south to fayette park. Went all the way back in south river & still nothing. Fished the drop offs, around any boulders I could find & tried shallows. Threw tubes, spinner baits, swim jigs, chatter baits but just wasn't able to get into them. ??
Would like to go back soon so anyone with any tips would be appreciated..
Check out snake island. Also the bluffs by fayette.
Thanks for the tips Jimmy, going to try to go 27th or 28th and launch at Nahma. It's a short ride over to garden area.
