Greg and Brandon can answer for sure, but I lived in Bessemer for 15 years and do not recall any guiding service. I'm sure some of the local resorts (Fishermans, Gogebic Lodge) have some guys that'll take you out and set you up, but I'm not 100% sure.

Well, I'm not too sure on who calls themselves "guides" for LG... There a few of us out there who can point you in the right direction and save you some cash at the same time. First, what species are you targeting? When are you planning on coming? Etc...? Let me know and I will see if I can help out! How's things goin Nate?

I actually did a search on "LG guides" and within 50 miles of the lake I found 1 person. It says that he guides for walleye and/or perch and that he is liscensed. Email me if you'd like that info. Thanks.

Things are good Brandon, got married in October, moved to the big city and have been enjoying this part of the adventure. How are things going in the UP? I'm hoping to make it up in March to fish, but scheduling is going to be tough since I'm coming up for walleye opener and if I get drawn for a turkey tag I'll be up for that too.

Hey hawk. Gonna be a good time I'd say. The snow situation is pretty bad on the East shore and not too bad on the West. We're supposed to get some warm weather this weekend and its descent today...sunny and windy. Hopefully those variables will knock the snow down some! I've heard people talking about as much as 2 feet on the East.. frown

WE have new tools in the moving around department, thats not a problem. Longer days and sunny make a great perch bite.

if you send email so we can chat kmaderatfrontiernetdotnet

Fish On

Jesse, hope to see you out there and will help when I can. I bet TO would ever have something to add.

Any advice is welcome. Feel free to email or PM

How are the ice and snow conditions?

I'm going to kill 2 birds with one stone up in the area in the near future. Going to rent a place so I can snowboard one day and ice fish for a day or two.

I'd like to get on some of them big perch, I don't even want to keep any just see them in my own hand lol. If anyone could point me in the right direction or have any pointers that would be awesome.

If your talking to me no I haven't made it up that way yet. I've never fished the lake and don't know much about it. I will definitely be heading there sometime this winter, been kinda waiting to hear some reports but I guess not many of those around lol.

I have heard fishing is actually good this year, but more walleye than perch are being caught. there is a new limit for perch on the lake which will help the fishery

Nice, they should protect those jumbos. Is there any night bite on this lake for the eyes?

I see Indian Head has a deal where if you buy a 3 day lift ticket you get 3 days lodging for free. They close the runs at 4pm so after that would be the best time for me to fish. I'd still skip a morning or afternoon of boarding for some fishing though.

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
