Lake Gogebic has seen very few anglers out on the water. Mostly shore fishermen using sucker minnows catching some nice walleye. Others are casting stick baits mainly during low light conditions. Snow and cold is on its way this week. Grouse hunting has been fair with not much pressure as most target the month of October. Woodcock have moved on as they fly south. Light bow hunting activity with reports of the deer herd improving slowly. Bucks are definitely on the move starting to chase does and making scrapes. Cold, snow, bucks chasing, and the rut almost here has rifle hunters excited for the up coming opener on Nov. 15th.
Ice fishermen are always excited for the approaching season. Remember the big lake ice will not freeze the same all over, as they begin fishing the bays the main lake ice may shift about before freezing again. BE SAFE!!!!! Check locally anytime before heading out. Due to these rapidly changing conditions at this time of year I will not be writing reports again until about Christmas time when we can expect safe travel about the lake with weather permitting. Be safe out there! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
