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!
