We were up there this past weekend, did really well on walleyes in 8 to 10 feet landing 50 plus fish and some nice keepers. Caught a few perch in 22-24 feet but the bite was a little slow. Thanks to Gus at Maple Ridge Lodge for pointing us in the right direction and setting Us up with bait and tackle, snowmobile Is a must do to slush and snow.

Was up there this last weekend. Snowmobile travel was decent. there are slush pockets here and there. You dont want to be stoppin until you really have to. But you should be ok. We caught some nice jumbos and some in the 12 inch range.

Lake Gogebic fishing has been a bit slower and angler activity as well. Walleye action has been slow with a few nice fish still reported coming from deeper water in the 24 to 27ft range. Perch anglers are still locating good numbers of fish in the 22ft. range however coaxing them to bite has been a struggle for some. A few anglers are locating active fish and connecting with some nice jumbos , so keep moving! Lake conditions continue to add more snow, as a result expect slush in most of the un traveled areas of the lake beneath the snow! Good Luck!

Tried for walleye on Sat, perch on Sun. Should have tried perch on Sat. Sat fished off east side landing, had two walleye come and look at bait but would not hit. Guys said they caught lots of perch on Sat in 22' range on wigglers. Tried perch on Sunday, off Porcupine point, had lots of lookers but no takers. Other perchers said same thing--some fish would even follow the bait up a couple feet and then scram. Weather probably did me in. Fri night to Sat am 4" snow fell. Sat night it dropped to -14 F, so it was pretty cold on sun. tried to walk out on Sat--could not get very far as there is about 16" ice, with 4" slush on top and then 14" powder on top of the slush. Very brutal trying to walk very far. Rented snowmobile on Sun and it even had difficulty in some spots. Thanks to Gus at Maple Ridge on north end of lake,for his advice. He put me on fish, with the right bait, but fish would not cooperate. If you go out, plan to walk on snowshoes or snowmobile as anything else will get stuck. Thanks to the two guys who helped me pull my portable back onto shore on Sat--one Yooper and one guy from Green Bay, did not get their names.

coming up beginning of March and again middle of March. I love Gogebic! It's a long drive but I have never met a person at Gogebic that was not helpful or friendly. My two boys are coming up for the first time this year. I do not know who is more excited, them or me.

Lake Gogebic travel conditions are good, but snowmobile is recommended. Expect some areas with slush to deal with on top of 18 to 20 inches of ice on average. Some real nice walleye have come from the 20 to 24ft range but no big numbers. Perch action had slowed over the weekend with a front moving thru causing a good number of fish being marked or raised but not cooperative to bite! Today is a fine sunny winter day so we hope that bite will improve. Anglers are not having a problem locating fish mostly in the 20 to 22ft and 24 to 26ft range. Best of luck!

Well we made it back. Nice to get away had a wonderful time away with my daughter. Fishing wasnt the best. We only got one 11 incher sat afternoon and the weather made us leave earlier than wanting to, But three hours on the ice on sunday and only marked two fish. Nine pines was very good to us tho. Nice to walk into a cabin that smells clean and was very well kept up. Thanks to bear and his wife for a nice stay.

Fishing with Gus out of Maple Ridge in Bergland. Biggest perch we have ever caught and the best hospitality we've ever had. If you want excellent service and great fishing I highly recommend staying with maple ridge We caught multiple jumbo perch and I mean JUMBO PERCH. Also crushed the walleye in the shallows in the afternoon. 16-22" Gus is a class act I highly recommend him.

Lake Gogebic fishing is still in a fair mid winter pattern. Some walleye action continues in the 7 to 11 ft. range and again in the 24 to 28ft. depths with both areas producing on sucker minnows and jigging baits during low light conditions. Perch action has been above average with nice catches of jumbos on wigglers in 20 to 22ft. and also 24 to 26ft. depths. Lake conditions are snowmobile recommended with plenty of snow and areas of slush due to the heavy snow on top. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361
