How much ice?
MOON PHASE (7%)
Lake Gogebic report has been fair for shore anglers using sucker minnows for walleye. Activity has been very light as most are concentrating on deer hunting right now. Happy hunters are enjoying good snow cover across the Gogebic range and improved deer numbers over last year. Todays rifle opener is a bit milder with snow melting, but good cover still remains. Early ice may not be too far off if weather conditions return to winter like temps. Remember to be safe as early ice can be very unpredictable!!! Please check locally in areas you may be heading out. My regular reports will resume near the end of December when we should have safe ice travel throughout the lake. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
There is a thin layer on Bergland Bay. We've got mid 30's for the next few days - then the temps look to drop. We've got a web cam that shows the north end of the lake and a good way to key an eye on things. After the warm up next week - it looks as thought we'll have a string of cold weather that should start to make some ice!

Lake Gogebic reports very light angler activity. Some shore fishermen reporting good catches of walleye using minnows. Continued heavy snows with winter like conditions have dropped water temps quickly. Grouse hunters are slowing down for the season with few birds reported. Deer numbers have improved some over last year and many are preparing for the Nov. 15th rifle opener! Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bears Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

Lake Gogebic fishing remains very slow. A few nice perch have come in using crawlers in 8ft. to 12ft. Northern Pike have been hitting minnows but are running small. Smallmouth have been fair in hard bottom areas and near weed edges. Walleye bite remains slow. Fall colors have reached peak very quickly this week. Grouse hunters are finding very low numbers of birds. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
Lake Gogebic report is fair. Smallmouth are still active in hard bottom areas. Walleye have been hit and miss reports working the weeds and the deeper mud flats. Crawlers and leeches are still getting the best results. Warm temps way above average are still in the forecast for the upcoming week! We are into the second week of bear season with good reports despite the hot weather. Grouse season opened on the 15th with hunters and grouse both in low numbers. We have been seeing a few more young birds out there than we did last year so that is a good sign. Over all bird numbers seem low yet with only a few reports in certain areas that hunters have seen good numbers. Fall colors are coming in fast at about 25%. Best of luck to all on the water and in the woods. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361
