Lake Gogebic has a lot of ice on it yet, but many shorelines are becoming hard to access. Anglers over the weekend had great travel and nice weather along with some nice perch. The main lake ice had two layers with a hollow pocket in between due to all the slush we had this winter. The top layer has softened which will cause travel to be difficult. Travel on the ice is NOT recommended!!!! Time to think spring! Lets hope weather conditions will get the ice off before the May 15th opener!

Lake Gogebic fishing was slower over the weekend, heavy winter weather was a factor and angler activity has been slow since. Current ice conditions are good with more wet slushy snow on top. Expect approx. 3 to 6 inches of slush as the snow has settled down quickly. Use caution near snow covered shorelines that may be unsafe! Anglers are using both snowmobile and atv`s. Surface and ice conditions can change quickly, weekend forecast is for a warm up to 50 plus temps which can change travel conditions fast! Reports are on angler activity and are not a guarantee of ice safety. Please use caution, check locally, and be safe! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Any recommendations on general areas/mudflats to find the perch now? North, South, East, West?
What areas do the perch spawn? Just wondering because they should be staging closer to these areas?
Any help would be appreciated.
Feel free to PM me.

Lake Gogebic report has not changed. Perch action has been good using wigglers over the mud from 20 to 30ft. Lake conditions and travel are good as well, expect 12 to 14 inches of ice with a few inches of slush on top. More snow is in the forecast for the weekend, but do not expect it to effect travel. Reminder of safety at this time of year!! Caution near shorelines and any inlets to the lake as ice conditions can change quickly. Please check locally before going out. These reports are of local activity and do not guarantee safety. Best of luck and enjoy ! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic perch fishing continues to be very good! A repeat of depths in 20 to 23ft. are producing good numbers but smaller size. Depths of 26 to 30ft are producing less fish but more jumbo`s. Ice conditions are great, with recent rain that settled the surface layer down. Expect 12 to 14 inches of ice with a few inches of snow and slush on top. Reminder!!! It is April and ice conditions can change quickly, even over night, so please check locally before heading out and be SAFE! Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic perch action has fired up! Nice catches have been coming in with good reports from anglers enjoying the good ice conditions in April! Action has been best in 20ft to 22ft on wigglers with some of the larger fish hitting in 26ft to 30ft but not as many. Lake conditions have improved with travel being best early in the day even with atv`s, but later in the day as things warm up wheeled travel may be difficult. Expect snow cover with a crust on top with areas that have 6 to 8 inches of slush before hitting the main ice. Snow and slush has settled down nicely in the past week. Forecast is for good temps with lows in the teens or twenties and highs 35 to 40 during the day. Enjoy this great ice fishing time of year! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361
