Lake Gogebic ice report and travel conditions are good. Current night temps are dipping into the teens making travel in the mornings very good. If we begin to see warmer temps during the day conditions may get wet and slushy by late day as there is a lot of snow on the ice yet. Walleye season is now closed, but anglers continue to target the Perch working wigglers in 23ft. to 29ft. over the mud. Success continues to be fair overall with some slow reports and some good reports. We have seen some very nice jumbo`s on the ice but not consistent. As late ice conditions can change quickly please be safe and also check locally where you are heading out. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

Well, thats unfortunate for you guys. I fished Friday and Sat and caught 20 fish total. A few 14", biggest was 15" and just shy of 2lbs. Finished 4th in tourney by 0.3oz...
Fishing with Guy and Ray Sibley was a good idea, as we had plenty of action, despite being literally surrounded by fishermen.

Ditto the previous report. We marked a lot of fish but they weren't eating. We managed about 8 perch and a couple walleyes for the whole weekend between 7 of us. All the perch were big, but few and far between.
Lots of guys with the same story as us. Can scratch this lake of my list.

Spent the weekend at Timbers Resort. Great clean place to stay. Fishing was terrible. Managed 5 perch all weekend. Only 1 decent one. Everyone we talked to said the same. Very disappointing. Glad I checked it out but probably wont return on ice. May check it out in the summer. Good luck to all.

3 of us fished Friday, Sat, and couple hours on Sunday. Very slow, only managed 1 walleye, a small mouth, and 2 small northern. Fished the east side boat landing, targeting walleye. Covered 10-30 feet with Tip ups and sucker minnows. Did some jigging also. Lots of snow on top making travel tough. Warm weather making it very soft on top.

Fishing has been ok for the past three days. Got a few nice perch but you will have to work for them. Managed to catch a 19 inch walleye and a few northern as well. For guidance I would stop at Gus’s bait shop and buy some bait from him. He has forgotten more about this lake than most will ever know. He is always willing to give a few pointers.

Lake Gogebic report has improved slowly this week.The past few weeks anglers that did locate fish found it hard to get them to do anything but bump the bait. Early this week seen a few better reports coming in mainly for the perch everyone has been waiting for. Anglers working wigglers and spikes in 25ft. to 29ft. are seeing some better action, but it is spotty. Walleye continue to provide some action using sucker minnows and jigging baits working 16ft. to 20ft. and also in the same 25ft. to 29ft. that the perch anglers are working.
Lake conditions are good using snowmobile. Recent heavy snow will cause some difficult travel in areas for those using ATV`s. Weather forecast shows highs in the 30`s with lows in the teens. Expect that conditions may be nice and firm in the mornings and soft to wet conditions by the afternoon.
Best of luck to all! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
