The U.P. offers some of the best fishing in the United States! If you don't have have a fishing boat, I would recommend trying the Gladstone Public Fishing Pier. If you do have a boat then by all means I recommend getting out on either Little Bay De Noc or Big Bay De Noc. Some of the best Walleye fishing has been known to be in these bays. There are boat launches scattered around. My favorite places for ease of launching the boat include: The Rapid River public boat launch, Hunter's Point boat launch, the Nahma public boat launch and Garden Bay public boat launch. These are just a few of the many places to launch your fishing boat but I have had good luck at them all. If you're looking for some early season bass fishing I recently have had my best luck launching from Garden Bay and Nahma. These two boat launches will get you onto Big Bay De Noc, home of the monster smallmouth bass. The following are some of my pictures from 2012 while bass fishing in Big Bay De Noc on Lake Michigan:
