Forget about the quad!!! You will not get 100 feet! Snowmobiles only and even they are getting stuck. Probably a foot of wet snow and slush. Wear tall waterproof boots! One of our guys got a soaker this past weekend in his Rockies when the slush went over the top. gunt he snowmobile when you see a slush pocket int he snow or you will bog down!

Hey guys, I'm heading up this weekend and was wondering how the lake travel may be this weekend with the warmer temps coming up? I've got a snowmobile but would rather use the quad if possible since it's better set up for hauling my gear/portable. I think I know the answer but was hoping for some input from someone who may be a bit closer to the actual conditions on the lake. Thanks in advance.

We are heading up for the next few days to do some perch fishing. Anyone have any suggestions on where to catch some perch and what to use? If they are very hard to catch what do the locals use to incise the bite? Any help is mach appreciated. Is there any special type of jigs or spoons I should bring? I heard porcupine point. Is this so? Thanks again!

Lake Gogebic fishing has been fair at best with little changes. Ice travel is definitely snowmobile. Recent heavy snow with more on its way as we speak. Expect slush under that snow in the less traveled areas. Both perch and walleye continue to produce mixed reports on success and depth ranges. Best advice is to remain mobile and explore more than one area to locate some active fish. The perch anglers have been marking fish but are still finicky! So move on and look for more active fish. Best of luck!

Lake Gogebic travel conditions remain good, but fishing continues to be slow. Scattered reports on Walleyes from various depths this week. The best continue to be shallow 7 to 12ft during low light conditions with others getting some action in 17 to 22ft and also in 26 to 30ft. Perch are very sluggish biting, anglers are marking fish, but they are not very active yet. Perch reports are also very widespread with activity in 24 to 26ft and also 29 to 31ft. Best of luck!

I don't know about this year but I was up there this time last year and the walleye bite died about two hours after dark. We stayed out until 1am one night and never had a flag after 8:00. That makes for a boring time.

Heading up first sat in March cant remember all the regs on helmets.I know you have to have one for snowmobile do you need one for 4-wheelers? Also what about trail pass or something like that for 4 wheelers.Have to wait and see what the conditions are if i can even use 4 wheeler.Do you have to have helment period,i am staying at a cabin on the east shore right on the lake south of bergland bay.Last year we went in early Feb did good on eyes but only 1 perch.This will be the 4th time in 4years perch bite keeps going down hill trying later in the year see how that works.Thanks for any help.

We didn't give it much time after dark but I do remember it slowing down quite a bit at last light. Main reason we didn't stick it out late was the weather that weekend and the slush. Give it a try and see what happens. Good luck!

PanfishPete,

Fishing is usually very good for walleyes right in the bay you are staying in (Bergland Bay). Find some weed patches in 5-10 FOW and you will catch walleyes. Not sure if they will be keepers but you should get some action on tip-ups. Last time we fished there a couple years ago my buddy was nailing small walleyes on a jigging rapala one after another. Typical sundown last hour bite. We struggled to find keepers but had a blast chasing flags! Most of the walleyes were about 13-14.5 inches.
