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.

I'm thinking Gus at Maple Ridge can help you out. You can find him on the Google.

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.

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.

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
