Welcome to Sall-Mar Resort and Bay de Noc Charters
Perch have always been a highly sought after fish in the Bays de Noc area. Not only are they fun to catch, but they are some of the best table fare you'll ever sink your teeth into. Historically, both Big and Little Bay de Noc were famous for their spring perch runs, which occur shortly after ice-out. Perch numbers dwindled throughout the late 90's and early 2000's, but they are making a pretty good comeback. With cormorant control now taking place, more juvenile perch are able to survive to adulthood. The last few years has seen the perch fishery rebound, and now there are many perch in the 8 to 12 inch range...just perfect for the deep fryer! It is not just a spring bite either, some of the best perch fishing the past few years has been in the fall from September through November. Many perch come shallow in the fall, and this is a great time for small-boaters and even shore anglers to get in on the action. It's a great time for taking kids.
