Gogebic Advice

2 posts in this topic

Hey Guys! I'm heading up to Gogebic on the 30th to chase some walleyes and hopefully a few smallies. Anybody got any advice for a Gogebic newbie? Also, is there any good trout streams nearby that would make it worthwhile to throw my waders in the truck? Thanks in advance.

Hey honker, Gogebic is a tough nut to crack when it comes to walleye, but I'll try and get you started. I prefer slip bobbers and lindy rigs on Gogebic for the majority of my walleye fishing. I've had the best luck with a Gypsy Jig a foot or so off the bottom, minnow hooked through the head, pink and chartreuse where hot on opener. Find a mid lake hump/crib, throw 2 bobbers out and jig with your 3rd rod (yes, 3 rods in MI). You can cover a lot of water drifting lindy's and you can usually pick up some decent numbers. Last year we were catching dozens of 13-14 in eyes, this year that class is up to 16-17 (15 is legal with a 5 bag limit). As far as trout, again depending where you are staying, I would take a trip back to Bessemer and head to Black River Harbor. It's a very scenic drive and the Black River has some nice trout. Try Rainbow and Gorge Falls on Black River road (about a mile south of the harbor). You can catch cohos and browns off the breakwall and also in the harbor itself. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
