Lake Gogebic report has not changed. Fishing continues to be slow. Anglers are mainly working jig and minnow combos now or minnows below slip bobbers targeting walleye. Constant rain and bad weather continues day after day with 4 inches in the last few days. This has made it tough for both fishermen and grouse hunters. The fall colors are at about peak right now. Best of luck in the woods and on the water! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
Barry, are your fishing reports based on you being on the water or what others are telling you. Just curious. We stayed at the old Sunnyside resort last week and were only able to get on the water 4 days due to weather conditions. We limited out on eyes those 4 days and had a handful of perch and crappies too. We worked both bars and the cribs. We were just vertically jigging both minnows and crawlers. Days we weren't able to get on water we just fished off the docks and didn't get asked to leave them even once.

Lake Gogebic early fall fishing report has been very slow. The few anglers that have been out continue to struggle. Most are using jig and minnow combos now and some are trolling or casting stick baits. The best reports are coming from weeds and weed edges during low light conditions. Some continue to search for perch in the weeds using night crawlers. Water temps have dropped to the low 50`s and fall colors are at 50%. Grouse hunters are reporting low flush rates and a lot of leaves on the trees yet. Best of luck to all! Barry (bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

Lake Gogebic reports light angler activity. Some nice perch continue to come from the weeds using crawlers. Walleye has been up and down with reports on fish hitting crawlers drifting or trolling the mud flats , casting and trolling stick baits over the mud and near shore, while others are pitching sucker minnows in the weeds and near break lines. Smallmouth are hitting sucker minnows near the same breaks. Cooler temps have arrived again with fall color coming on quickly. Best of luck Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

Lake Gogebic fishing is on the upswing this week. Anglers reporting better catches of perch using crawlers in the weeds and even some coming from those trolling the mud flats. The walleye bite has improved as well using leeches in the weeds and weed edges and trolling crawlers over the mud. Minnows will begin to be part of anglers tactics with temps beginning to cool down at night with lows in the 40`s and 50`s bringing the water temp down.
Reminder, the Lake Gogebic Area Chamber of Commerce annual fall walleye fishing tournament will be held Sept. 7th and 8th.
Best of luck to all! Have a safe holiday weekend. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

+Lake Gogebic report remains slow overall. Anglers are working weeds with leeches, trolling crawler rigs over the mud, and using boards and stick baits for walleye with limited success. A few perch are hitting crawlers in the weeds. Smallmouth are providing the best action using crawlers leeches and artificials.
From the woods, the chokecherries, blueberries and blackberries have all pretty much ripened and are nearing the end. Grouse numbers are looking low, but may be to early to tell with all the tall grass and leaves for them to hide. Bear numbers are looking good with baiting season underway and hitting the baits consistently.
