Bay de Noc - Walleye Fishing Wonderland

Catching Walleyes on the Bay de Noc

While the Bay de Noc covers an area of more than 50 square miles the best walleye fishing is by far in the upper sections of the bay north of Gladstone. Thanks to the stocking efforts of both the DNR and the Bay de Noc Great Lakes Fishermen, walleye fishing here has reached a peak not seen for the last 30 years. The abundance of these large fish provide just the opportunity you are looking for to catch that trophy fish worthy of hanging on your wall. Using just a few techniques can pull in some very nice walleye.

When trolling for Bay de Noc walleye you should consider both the water temperature and depth as well as your lure depth, color, and action. If fishing on windy days you may also need to consider direction in order to achieve the best result.

Walleye are extremely light sensitive fish and will seek out deep waters in order to protect themselves from sunlight. Walleye are best suited for depths of 20-40 feet but can be found in shallower waters if the water temperature will not permit them to dive that deep. In order to find walleye in shallower waters the best time of day to fish for Walleye is at dusk and dawn when large amounts of sunlight will not be a factor.

Good results for walleye fishing Bay de Noc are often achieved during October and continue until the bay has iced over. Using a lead core line and planer boards will allow you to transfer wave action to your lure which is an extremely effective tactic. When choosing lure color you should try to match the forage conditions. This can be a trick that takes some time to perfect as where you fish can change several times throughout the day causing you to have to adjust both your lure color and depth.

Try to troll areas that have a uniform depth and try pitching a crankbait near the shoreline.

Trolling for walleye on the Bay de Noc can result in larger fish on the hook with greater consistency. The most important thing to remember is to always check for changing conditions throughout the day and adjust your techniques accordingly. As the sun comes out and the water warms and the light increases the walleye will continue to seek out deeper depths. Likewise, as you approach dusk and for several hours after dark the walleye will begin to seek out shallower waters. This is a great time to be on the hunt for your walleye trophy.
