Lake Gogebic report has not changed. Reports for both Perch and Walleye have been slow to fair. Most anglers reporting a very light bite or marking fish with no takers. They continue to work the mud in a wide range from 21ft. to 29ft. Lake and ice conditions have been good with travel by snowmobile the best. Good luck!

All landings are probly 2 to 3 feet base hard packed by snowmobiles. If you can stay on top with a truck......you might get out......but you probly wont get back off. Some years if you get a good thaw in february it is possible late feb into march but its rare. The shorelines are pretty much reserved as snowmobile trails. Plowing roads out perpendicular would be detrimental to the winter cash cow. That said there is usually pretty good fishing just beyond the hard pack along the nort/south shorelines and pretty easy to walk to if you travel light.

Lake Gogebic report has been up and down this past week with an overall report of fair. When temps warmed up we had some good reports on walleye in 16ft. to 18ft. and also in 23ft. to 26ft. using suckers and fatheads. Perch report has been slow to fair with hit and miss catches. Anglers using wigglers and spikes have been marking fish in 23ft. to 25ft. with mostly lookers and a few nice perch coming in.
Snow and cold has once again moved in with lake travel best by snowmobile. ATV travel will be limited to hard packed areas in some places, but not recommended. Overall ice conditions and travel are good.
Good luck and stay warm! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

The fishing can also be very good walking off the gogebic lodge. Walk out to 22-25' and you will find walleyes and perch. My buddies and I got 4 perch over 14.75" last winter off the lodge and a lot of 10-12".
Rods of Furry,
Try off of the East Shore DNR boat landing. Many walk out. There hasn't been many fishing as of late because of the cold but a warm front moving in by next week should get people out and give you an idea where to fish. Good luck.

Lake Gogebic report has been cold! Brrrrr! Bitter cold temps have not kept anglers off the ice. Overall the bite has been slow with anglers reporting lookers, not takers and light bites. Anglers have now been working the deep mud flats in the lake for perch and walleye using wigglers and sucker minnows. Others continue to work shallow depths mainly for walleye and northern with low light periods being best for the walleye. Lake travel has been good for ATV`s in most areas of the lake and snowmobiles having no problems at all. Expect some slush in pockets and bumpy travel in areas that machines passed over and slush froze up quickly with the cold temps. The weekend forecast shows some more tolerable temps. Best of luck!
