Little Bay De noc

I just got back fro vacation to Little Bay De noc. Mother nature made fishing difficult but otherwise it was enjoyable. The cabin was really nice and the scenery up there is superb. I will have a lot of photos coming. We stayed at Brookes cabins and were pleasantly surprised how nice the cabin was and the view was great. We kept the boat in the water a short walk away. The owners were really nice.

The water temperature was 60 degrees so the bay was still in summer mode with not many walleye moved in yet. i was catching some nice smallmouth bass the first 2 days while it was raining but when the sun came out the 3rd day they disappeared into the weeds or somewhere.

I was surprised at the depths, it would go from 50′ to one foot in an instant. It’s a good thing I bought that navionics/hotspot chip which was great by the way. I didn’t see contour lines when I looked at it at home but when I got there it showed full detail and contour lines. The water was very clear. I didn’t take my transom mount electric motor and wish I had, the fish were likely very spooky. Now I see why guys like those minnkota auto steering motors, trying to stay on an edge is about impossible with wind and kicker motor. I wouldn’t want one for the rivers but if I lived there I would have one.
