FISHING REPORTS:

Lake Gogebic ice conditions have improved some. Angler pressure has been very light and reports are that fishing has been slower also. Anglers have been catching a few nice perch using wigglers in 23ft. to 28ft. but just not getting large numbers of fish. Heavy slush has been reduced to 6 to 12 inches in places with colder temps allowing some atv travel. Expect 24 to 30 inches of ice. Mornings have been cold so the lake surface has been good travel, with some difficulty later in the day if things warm up. Some areas are much better than others so just check locally before heading out. We have had recent snow of about 2 to 4 inches and the weeks forecast shows cold temps, so travel should hold about the same. Use caution near shoreline inlets that may still be covered with snow. Reports are of angler activity with no guarantee of safety, so use caution, check locally and be safe. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic fishing has been good. Nice size Perch continue to come from 22ft. to 28ft. using wigglers. Travel is difficult. Expect heavy slush and snow. Colder temps at night have allowed fair travel in the morning, but by late in the day travel is difficult. With ice running 25inches to 30inches in places a word of caution! Only about 10 inches of that is good solid ice, and with the heavy snow melt combined with the top two thirds of ice being poor quality refrozen slush over the winter that ice could honeycomb very quickly as the lake drains off! Be aware and be safe. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic fishing continues it`s up and down trend. Lake conditions began to improve and anglers reporting even limit catches of perch! But the good one day and bad the next was also included in those reports. Winter weather continues with 20 inches of new heavy wet snow today. Lake travel is still best by snowmobile. Expect slushy conditions, but lake ice is still winter ready! Best of luck. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic report has been snow and more snow! Perch fishing has been on again off again. Few anglers are out with good reports one day and poor reports the next. Anglers are still fishing over the mud in 22ft. to 26ft. using wigglers. Lake travel is tough with lots of snow, snowmobiles are needed and foot travel will be best using snow shoes. Best of luck!

Lake Gogebic reports are looking better. Milder temps have had a few more anglers out on the ice and the bite has improved as well! Perch anglers are using wigglers and spikes in 22ft. to 26ft with fair reports. Walleye action has been fair using suckers in 9ft. to 18ft. and also 24ft. to 28ft. Reminder on walleyes that the season closes this sat. March 15th!!! Lake travel is snowmobile only or if on foot snowshoes will be a great help. Recent mild weather did settle the snow pack some, but expect areas with deep snow and slush under it. Plenty of ice out there, just use caution not to get stuck in the less traveled areas. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic report is slow. Very few anglers out. Bitter cold, high winds and lots of snow has kept both anglers and fish on the quiet side. Travel is tough, expect to need a snowmobile! Very deep snow with slush below has kept travel limited. Walleye season is open until March 15th and Perch anglers will be at it until last ice. Most are still fishing 22ft. to 26ft. for both using sucker minnows and wigglers. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic fishing is on the up side! Perch anglers have been doing very well in 22ft. to 26ft. using wigglers. Warmer temps have perked up the fish and the anglers. Walleye action has been fair with most action on sucker minnows in 24ft. to 26ft. of water. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic angler pressure continues to be very light. Both perch and walleye action have been very spotty. A few excellent walleye reports in 16 to 24ft using sucker minnows under tip-ups. Most perch anglers are fishing 21 to 25ft using wigglers with only a few fish to show for it. Weather conditions remain cold with below zero temps at night and lots of snow on top with areas of slush. Snowmobile is recommended. Best of luck!

Lake Gogebic report has been slow. Very few anglers have been out. Mostly due to cold temps and snow. A few perch are still hitting wigglers in 20 to 25ft. and walleye are hitting sucker minnows in 10 to 16ft during low light conditions and also in 24 to 28ft depths. Expect lots of snow and areas of slush! Snowmobile travel is a must. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic anglers have been out in force! Mild temps brought everyone out after the cold snap. Along with the warmer temps came more slush to deal with on the ice. As always it is good travel in some areas and worse in others so be aware. Snowmobile is best way to travel now. Perch anglers have been icing some real jumbo`s using wigglers in 21ft to 25ft over the mud. Walleye action has picked up some with more keeper fish showing up. Use sucker minnows or jigging rapalas in 10ft to 16ft. depths during low light conditions or fish deeper in the 24ft to 27ft. range. Best of luck!

Lake Gogebic deep freeze is breaking. The bitter cold temps have been keeping most anglers inside along with the fish not being very cooperative. Perch anglers have been doing the best, the few that have been out. Use wigglers in 20 to 24ft. most walleye anglers are fishing sucker minnows in 10 to 16ft. and also some in 23 to 26ft.The weekends milder temps will hopefully bring out both the fish and anglers anxious to get back out.

Lake Gogebic fishing has slowed a bit with bitter cold temps. Walleye are being very fickle with the cold temps. Perch anglers are still coaxing some nice size perch onto the ice using wigglers, but has slowed from what it was. Concentrate on 20 to 24ft. depths. Ice travel is good . Most slush pockets have firmed up allowing snowmobile and ATV`s to travel on top. Be cautious of some slush areas that ATV`s may cut thru the top layer, but most with chains are still doing fine. Best of luck and have a happy and safe new year! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort

Lake Gogebic ice conditions are very good. Snowmobile and ATV travel are both good. Expect 8 to 12 inches of ice with 6 to 12 inches of snow on top. Some slush pockets with 4 to 6 inches of slush and water on top. ATV travel will be best with a set of chains. Walleye are hitting sucker minnows and jigging baits mostly during low light conditions in 7 to 14 feet. Some Northern Pike using the sucker minnows as well. Perch anglers are moving about in the deeper water now in 20 to 25 feet using wigglers! Enjoy the great conditions and be safe. Have a great Holiday season!

Nov 30th, 2013 Lake Gogebic ice is on! Deer hunting report has been fair with not much hunting pressure and hunters happy with snow on the ground! The main lake is now froze over, but anglers are only fishing the bays. Good snow cover on the ice will insulate and slow the building of ice. Early ice can be very!!!! unpredictable so pleeeeeese! use caution and check locally wherever you may be heading out! These reports are no guarantee of safety, only reports of angler activity. Anglers fishing 4ft. to 8ft. are catching walleye using sucker minnows below tip-ups and also jigging rapalas mostly during low light conditions. Be safe and have fun!

Lake Gogebic report has been great for shore anglers! Sucker minnows are working well for the walleye. Very few boats on the water. Grouse hunting was good along with fair numbers of woodcock. Most are excited and preparing for the upcoming rifle deer opener which begins Nov. 15th. Many of the backwaters have had ice on in the mornings which is a sign winter is not far off! As the season changes ice will soon begin to form on the bays and reports will be fewer. Remember first ice can be very unpredictable! Anyone fishing during this time, please check locally before heading out! Expect random updates, but regular reports will again resume during safe ice periods. Enjoy the outdoors! and be safe!

Lake Gogebic report has improved! Recent snowfall in the area has reminded us that winter is not far off! Walleye have responded to the change as well. Very few anglers are out on the water, but most are shore anglers. Sucker minnows have been key fished during low light conditions. Yes, those keeper size fish are still there! Casting crank baits are also productive at this time of year. A few perch have been caught using crawlers, but are very hit and miss. Smallmouth and northern are also hitting sucker minnows as well! Grouse hunting has still been very good. Best of luck in the woods and on the water. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic fishing is still about the same. Very few anglers out on the water with most giving poor reports. Shore anglers are beginning to get active using sucker minnows in the evening and after dark. Weather is finally cooling down with more seasonable temps. In the 40`s and 50`s. Grouse hunting has been very good this week with most all the leaves down now. Woodcock numbers have been great also! Bowhunters have been very quiet with little activity. Best of luck in the woods and on the water! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic fishing has stayed very slow this week with very little angler activity. Many are still using some night crawlers in 20 to 25ft. and also in 8 to 11ft. for both perch and walleye. Sucker minnows are at the top of the list for the season and are catching walleye in the same areas. Fall colors are still nice with about 50% of the leaves down. Grouse hunting has been fair and bow hunting has been quiet with not many hunters out. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic weather report is to nice! Mild temps have kept the larger fish very slim this week. Very few anglers on the water with the best reports using sucker minnows. Fall colors are at about peak with approx.. 20% of the leaves fallen. Grouse hunters are happy with bird activity improving and beginning to see a fair number of young birds to flush! Bow season for whitetail deer is now open with hunters enjoying the nice fall weather! Best of luck in the woods and on the water. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic fishing has been fantastic for catching numbers of walleye! Anglers are still sorting lots of undersize fish. The past few days have seen a few more nice size fish in the 20 inch class. Most are still using a variety of bait including crawlers, and leeches with sucker minnows beginning to work well. Bear season is into the third hunt, grouse season is underway, and fall colors have popped quickly! Enjoy the fall season. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic fishing has changed very little this week. Very few anglers are out on the water. Grouse season is now open and many are spending time in the woods. Walleye are still hitting crawlers,leeches, and minnows fished in deep water and in the remaining weed beds. Perch has been slow and smallies are still hitting near any edges and break lines with harder bottom. Best of luck in the woods and on the water!

Lake Gogebic walleye continue to be caught in great numbers! Expect to find lots of smaller fish as they have been very active. Use crawlers in 20 to 25ft or leeches in 9 to 12ft. Perch are a bit hit and miss, but concentrate on 6 to 8ft using crawlers. Smallmouth are moving deeper near weed lines and points. Minnows are also beginning to work well, so be flexible at this time of year. Cooler weather is forecast later this week which may improve the bite for the larger fish! Best of luck!

Lake Gogebic fishing has been improving! Walleye anglers drifting or trolling night crawlers in 20ft. to 26ft. are catching great numbers of fish once again! Expect to catch lots of shorts. Leeches fished in or near the weed edges from 9ft. to 12ft. are catching both walleye and smallmouth. Perch action has been best using crawlers in 6 to 8ft. in the weeds. Expect some action to to be seen using minnows at this time as the bite will be changing from the standard crawlers and leeches to fall minnow patterns. Reminder the Lake Gogebic Area Chamber of Commerce Annual fall Walleye tournament is coming quickly Sept. 6,7, and 8th. Best of luck to all!
