Just wondering if anybody has been out on Michigamme this summer and if they're having any luck. The crew and I are headed up this weekend for our annual fishing trip and I was hoping someone could give me a little bit of insight on what seems to be working this year. Thanks.

Nothing doing on Van Riper end of the lake today. Started in 16 fow and moved 3 times ending up in 8'. Had tip ups spread out from 5' to 12'. No flags and not one mark on the vexilar. Guess I know why I've never seen anyone ice fishing this end of the lake. Fished from 8-2

Has anyone had any luck lately. I've been at Michigamme for a week and have had very little luck?

I fish the lake quite a bit and it can be tough to figure out. Your best spot can turn into your worst spot within 24 hours. We have had the best luck on the leg of the lake that spreads east to west ( the northern side of the lake) There are three booies toward the center of the east to west strip. That spot usually always produces. The booies are on a wall of rocks but drop offs to the east and north. We jig and also use slip bobbers, always after walleye. Later in the summer (now) we like to jig in 18'-25' off drop offs, and have actually had the best luck on crawlers rather then minnows. We catch smallies, northerns, and rockbass in the shallower parts there, and walleyes off the drops.

Then if you look to the north (across the lake) from there you'll see a big white cross on a point, thats Presbytery Point. Guys like to troll that shore for big northerns and walleyes. There are some big drops that we've caught walleyes on, jigging or harnesses.

Finally there is a bigger island that is south west of Ramsay Island (is in the shape of an L) I cant remember the actual name, located in the armpit of the two legs (center of lake). On the eastern most point of the island there are some good drops that we catch wallayes on. Id put yourself on the southeast side.

Like I said nothing is guaranteed. Its day by day fishing and we always have mixed results. One day we'll catch 20 walleyes, the next we'll catch two. walleyes are normally between 13-18, biggest one we've caught is 24. A lot of mid sized smallies in shallows or around suspended rocks. Rockbass are thick as manure. And if you can find a croppie they are dinner plates. Good luck. I'll be up there this weekend as well. -Joey

Heading up to fish Michigamme the last week in August. I've never been on this lake and was wondering if anyone could spare a few hints/tips. I've been doing my homework as far as topo maps and other reports so I have a general idea of where to start, but this is a very large lake and we only have a week to cover as much as possible (targeting anything that will bite late August). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

My family and I are heading up Sunday for a few days to camp and will be doing some fishing. First time on Michigamme. Just looking for some tips on where to start. Not looking for any hotspots or secrets, just to get pointed in a general direction. PM me if you would like. Thanks for any help.

Was up over Memorial Day weekend and hit the lake a few times. Caught some decent smallies and a few monster rock bass, but that was it. Didn't bring the boat, so we couldnt really target specific fish. Will be back up in 3 weeks and hope to get shome shoulders and boxersh...btw, rock bass taste just like bluegill

Heading over tomorrow morning, not sure what to expect as I've never fished the lake before. I'm only 20 minutes away though so I figure it's worth a shot. Anybody reading this know what the ice looks like? Where to set up tip-ups? Is the jigging any good anywhere? Thanks a lot, I'll report when I get home tomorrow, good luck all.
