Lake Gogebic report has been fair with good quality fish being caught. Perch anglers reporting nice sized fish working crawlers and leeches in the weeds 8ft. to 12ft. and also over mud in 18ft. out to 25ft. Walleye have been nice sized as well in that 16 to 19 inch range working crawlers and leeches in the same areas. Trollers reporting the best action in that 18ft. to 21ft. range using boards with stick baits and crawler harnesses. Smallmouth continue to provide action in the weeds and on the rocks with some real bruisers giving lots of excitement! Best of luck. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
Looking to take my elderly father out this weekend and chase his memories from the 60's. Any advice where to cpr some smallies as a backup would be greatly appreciated. Probably launching on the north end.
Lake Gogebic report has been very good with most anglers all catching fish. Perch action has been hot in a wide range of depths using crawlers. Some working weeds from 4ft. to 12ft. while others are producing fish from 14ft. all the way out to 25ft. over the mud. Walleye action remains good over hard bottom areas using leeches in 14ft. to 20ft. with reports of lots! Of small fish keeping them busy. With others producing eyes over the mud pulling boards and crawler harnesses. Some great smallmouth have come in as well fishing weeds and rocky areas. Best of luck!

Just wanted to know how the fishing is towards the end of July. We are going to target walleye and Perch. If there are bluegill or crappie that would be great too. Just trying to figure out this lake alittle. Thanks for any help.
Lake Gogebic report has been fair. Anglers working rocks and hard bottom with leeches are taking both smallmouth and walleye. Trollers running boards with stick baits and crawlers have seen a few nice fish over the mud in 19ft. to 24ft. with fair success. Some perch have also been taken scattered out in the mud flats as weed growth seems to be coming in slowly. Some areas are seeing weeds popping quickly while other areas seem slow to start. Mayflies have also begun to hatch. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.

Tried the lake for the first time ever on Tuesday of this past week. Was told it was a great Smallie lake. It may be but I really struggled! I threw a square bill crank, Mepps, spinner bait, Yamamoto 4 inch worm and even a live crawler. I tried in 3 to 5 foot along the east side where I was told to try but only ended up with 3 small smallies and 1 small northern. May go give it a try again today. Ran into 3 guys at the boat ramp on our way out who told me they had been fishing for 3 days and only caught 3 fish.
Lake Gogebic fishing has been up and down daily as severe weather swings and heavy rain moved thru. It is on the upswing once again as anglers work upcoming weed growth using crawlers and leeches with good reports on both walleye and smallmouth. Others are working the mud flats with crawler harnesses for walleye using bottom bouncers and also suspended fish over the main lake basin. Heavy rain has water levels extremely high so watch for floating debris. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
Are the Cottages open for rent at Bears nine Pines Resort with the covid-19 cancellations ?
I have found that the start and end of the season for walleye is generally best. Gogebic walleye can be caught any time of the open season, however, if you're willing to troll open water or fish shores at dusk.
Large perch are almost exclusively caught during winter, thanks to schooling behavior. You can get a few big ones during summer, but it's extremely difficult.
Bear has the best info. Look for his reports in the past for the most accurate reports.
Is open water for perch/walleye usually good in September or is there a better time to try?
We've never fished this lake and I'm trying to get an idea of a good time to go.
