On Little Bay de Noc

Located on the Northern Shores of Lake Michigan in the Central Upper Peninsula, the Little Bay de Noc is an Walleye fishing paradise. The diverse shoreline and bottom contour provide some of the best fishing opportunities in the Midwest. 

Referred to by some as the Walleye Capitol of the World, the Little Bay de Noc is known for the trophy Walleye, and has been the host site for many professional Walleye fishing tournaments throughout the years.

For advice on where the fish are biting, contact one of the local bait shops to get the local insight.

Miles of freshwater shoreline with multiple boat launches, makes getting on the water simple. Our on-site boat launch allows the fastest access to the water without even having to leave the hotel. 

Convenient Lodging

Overlooking Lake Michigan on Little Bay de Noc, the Terrace Bay Hotel is the perfect place to start your Walleye fishing adventure. Anglers will feel at home with the boat launch on site allowing easy access to the Lake as well as an on-site fish cleaning room with running water.
