Did not see anyone else get out of their seats to net anything either.

Lake Gogebic fishermen have been doing well on perch and smallmouth with walleye action a bit slow with most of them running small. Crawlers and leeches worked in 8ft. to 12ft. of water have been producing the best results. Walleye anglers working the mud flats with planer boards and crawler harnesses are reporting some success as well. Best of luck! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
Lake Gogebic walleye and perch have been hitting crawlers fished in the weeds 5ft. to 10ft. depths. Anglers working leeches in harder bottom areas 12ft. to 18ft. are catching both Walleye and Smallmouth with trollers working the mud flat with crawlers and stick baits on boards for those suspended fish. Mayflies continue to hatch on and off in different areas of the lake. Best of luck and have a safe holiday! Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
Would anyone know if the mayflies are still hatching? TIA
Lake Gogebic fishing has been up and down all week. Anglers working leeches in 10 to 16ft. producing some walleye while others are trolling stick baits over the mud with some success. Smallmouth continue to provide action in hard bottom areas on both artificial and live bait. A few perch are starting to show up working the weeds with crawlers. Mayflies have started to hatch.

Fished June 5-11 with 7 adults and caught 10 bass (3 legal), 13 walleye (3 legal). Water was 70-72 degrees. Air temp started at 67 and reached 90 a couple of days. Winds varied and blow from all directions. Used leeches and crawlers. Trolled using bullet weights and bottom bouncers, slip bobbers, and jigged. Did not catch a northern.
Local comments were “between the bite”, “more of a bass lake than a walleye lake”, “and hasn’t been good walleye fishing for 20 years”.
Lake Gogebic fishing has been more stable now with everyone catching some fish. Walleye anglers are boating fish trolling stick baits in 24ft. to 27ft. depths. Live bait fishermen are seeing action using mostly crawlers and leeches now as more of a summer time pattern emerges with weed beds starting to pop. Smallmouth action remains good near shore using both artificial and live bait. Very few perch have been caught so far this season, but should improve with the weed beds coming up. Best of luck!

Let us know how you do in June.
Poor fishing. Fished 4 days, talked to numerous guys, never saw a net in the water. Trolled cranks, crawlers. casted, bobber fished, carolina rigs with live bait. north end and mid lake. 4 - 23 ft of water. Got into walleyes one night with 8, problem was all were 10 - 12 inches with only one legal. Smallmouth are up and shallow. Did well with shallow runner rattling cranks. Water is in the low 60s.
Lake Gogebic fishing has been fair despite drastic weather and temperature changes. Most all are catching fish but still running small. Best reports are coming from 21ft. to 25ft. depths with the evening bite still in 8ft. to 12 ft. Cold temps have retuned pushing the smallmouth back out, but warmer forecast for this weekend bass opener should provide some better action. Anglers continue to work jig and minnow combos along with crawlers and leeches to locate fish that seem to be in no distinct pattern with varied reports from all. A few reports of crappies coming from the bays this week as well. Best of luck and have a safe holiday. Barry (Bear) Drews at Bear`s Nine Pines Resort 906-842-3361.
