Fished Lake Gogebic Yesterday

26 posts in this topic

I guess the eyes are on fire in the shallows, lots of fish being caught. Typical LG eyes, 15-18 inches. I fished by the Lodge on Saturday for 2hrs, marked a ton of fish but only a few takers. I did manage 4 perch from 11-12.5 inches I think they were all males (no bellies), they were supposed to be photoed but of course my batteries were dead in the camera and I let them swim. I will be heading out next weekend to a spot that was hot last Winter so we will see. I will also bring extra batteries...

The ice is good where I was at it was about 8 inches of nice BLACK ice. But tonight's snow will not help at all.

Thanks Greg! I sure wish that year class of walleyes would hurry up and grow, seems like that's all we've been catching for the last couple years.

My buddy and I might be making a trip up there just not sure when. Is there ever a hot bite for the perchies? I know here in MN the month of March can be fast and furious if you find them. When is the best month to come up there? We will have a snowmobile to travel the lake.

Hey Biff, I've heard some rumors of a possible FM get together shaping up in late Feb over there. That would probably be a good time.

If you click the Ice Leaders line in my signature, it has some details.

I can't wait to head over there.

I bought a new sled just for this occasion.

Yep, Dtro is right Biff.

That is my trip of the season, besides many trips to the gravel pit grin.

We will have to hook up and head to the pit once or twice.

Great info. I will see if I can make that happen. I know I have classes around those times but I will see what I can do. I was hoping to head up there around spring break, smoewhere around March 16. But if all of you guys are heading there that would probably be best. We will see what happens.

Typically Feb and March are the best months. Last year we did well from Jan right up to Ice Out, so you never know. The perch are there, you just need to find them. It seems like they stay in a spot for about a week then move on. When you look at your GPS after a year of ice fishing, you can see a pattern which helps from year to year. But what you cannot predict year to year is an active wiggler bed, if you find one you will be on them.

As for the outing in Feb, I would recommend booking soon as snowmobile season is in Full Form up here right now and the rooms will be booking soon. I was at Maple ridge this weekend, and she told me she only has 2 rooms left. Not sure if FM'ers have them filled or Bubble Heads (snowmobiles).

With this cold snap I am sure the ice is great, we had -24 this morning...

Glad to hear the snowmobile season is in full swing, now if it will only last the entire winter! Snowmobiles are pretty much a "must" on Gogebic, since as Greg said awhile ago, Yoopers don't know much about ice roads grin

Hawk,

Sorry for not keeping up, I have been on Bay De Noc for the past week chasing eyes.

We had a tourney this weekend on LG, some really nice eyes being caught right now but the perch are finicky. I think a 14 incher that was 1.7lbs won it. So far it has been pretty much like last year, we are finding fish but not huge so far. I wish I had my camera but the ice fishing gods took that from me. As soon as I get a new camera I will get some pics.

So to answer your question, the fishing is good so far, not great but good.

I am almost all geared again. I need to get a few things yet. I hoping to be out in a couple of weeks.

My son speared a 43" long,21.5 girt 23# northen. He is having it mounted in a glass case and wants a perch to add to it.

T.O. and Hawk, you both fished with vook last year. I can be honest and say some people have a niche and can just catch fish... Vook is one of those guys.

Welcome aboard...

    • Well said Del! There weren't issues till he decided to stick his nose in it. The mod for that thread did just fine.
    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
