Fished solo mid day on the opener and managed 4 good eaters. Hard to jig a couple key spots as lots of folks were camped on them already. Put the boards out and covered ground until i found these fish. All appeared to be post spawn females.

Lake Gogebic opener was record setting! Not more than a week ago there was ice on the lake yet! Opening day was 70 degrees and sunny with light winds. Walleye action was great! Most anglers doing well were working 12ft. to 18ft. using jig and minnow combos, fuzzy grubs, and twister tails. These depths were producing lots of fish in the 16 inch to 19 inch range while shallower depths seen a few more throw backs with more of the smaller males. Reports of a lot of small northern pike and some very nice catch and release smallmouth. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

Lake Gogebic ice report. There has been no angler activity. Snow is off the surface and the few days of 70 degrees has darkened the surface and it has started to honeycomb, shoreline areas have begun to open up mainly near any inlets. DO NOT RECOMMEND ANY TRAVEL!!!! Will keep you posted as to when the main lake ice opens up. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

Lake Gogebic reports a good 2ft. of ice and the few anglers that have been out are reporting nice catches of jumbo perch. Angler activity has been very light. Surface conditions still has snow on it so with warmer temps or some light rain conditions could get very wet. Be safe and stay away from any inlets. REMEMBER! These reports are of angler activity and are not a guarantee of ice safety! Late ice conditions can change quickly. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

Lake Gogebic ice update. We are still in winter mode with 20 to 24 inches of ice. Snowmobile travel only with recent heavy snow expect 2 feet or more of snow on the ice. Mild daytime temps are forecast to be 40 to 50 degrees so expect slush and wet snow conditions. Shorelines are holding up well but still use caution near any inlets and remember conditions can change quickly! If not we may be ice fishing for the opener! Angler activity is at or near zero so no reports for you. Be safe! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

Lake Gogebic report has not changed. Winter like weather has kept ice thickness about 2 feet with 4 to 10 inches of snow on top. Even below zero temps this week at night and single digits have kept the lake locked up tight. Travel conditions are good but angler activity is near zero. Reminder annual fishing lic. Expire on March 31st so remember to get your new lic. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361

Lake Gogebic ice conditions are holding up well with reports of some nice perch hitting the ice. Expect 20 to 24 inches of ice with snow cover on top. With mid day temps in the 20`s and lows in the single digits which should keep conditions stable. If temps warm into the 30`s to 40 during the day expect wet conditions from the remaining snow cover. Perch anglers are working 26ft. to 29ft. with some very good reports and a few slow reports mixed in using wigglers and spikes. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

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.
