Im planning my first trip to little bay, and would like some help on where to stay in a clean low cost place, and where is the best marina to lauch close to walleyes in late September. I'm in a 1775 Pro-V and need to know the do's and do'nts. Do you have to fish at night?
How bout an all in one stop?

Well, almost. Go to the links section of Walleye Central and find the link for BayShore Resort. They are right next to the Kipling boat launch Right near the reefs in the north end of the bay, They have nice cabins, a huge bait and tackle shop, and there is food and fuel (the city of Gladstone) just a mile or two away.

Try the Bay View Motel, Their number 1-800-547-1201. They know whats going on and usually have plenty of fisherman staying there. The best launch is the Gladstone launch. Get the hotspots map for all the launches and where not to go. I'll be there from Wednesday till it freezes up. Good Luck, Doug

I agree with the Bay View Very nice place and very reasonable. It is also very close tho Bay Shore bait and the boat launch gas station is right next to the hotel stop in at the log cabin for dinner or if you are up there on Friday go to Harleys for a great fish fry. Good Luck and let us know how you did.

The most important "do" at LBDN:
If you fish out of the Kipling launch, get info on the location of the reef. It will not likely be marked well and with low water, you are bound to ruin a prop if you don't know about it.
Do not power load your boat either it is a $95 ticket.

I second the BayShore, very nice people, nice place close to the launch. Best selection of Storm T-Sticks around.

I'll cast my vote for Lindberg's Resort. They have the roomiest, best kept up cabins on the entire bay. John and Jeannie have worked hard over the years to keep the cabins up to date.
The girls have done a good job in renovating Bayshore. When they bought it, the previous owner
did not do much to keep it up, thus it was almost in shambles.
Another decent set of cabins is Brock's. The water got a little skinny on them this year, but people still managed to get their boats in there.
Bayview is a nice motel, friends of mine stayed there and the rooms were very nice. There are several nice motels, for that matter, in the LBDN
area. But I prefer the lakefront cabin resorts as
you can simply just pull up to the dock and walk back to the cabin as opposed to having to jockey
at the boat launch every day. As such, Lindbergs has the probably the best docking.
Lindberg's number is (906)428-4313. Tell them Bob and Donna from Chicago sent you.
Have fun at LBDN.
