Lake Gogebic?

Recommended Posts

What are you looking to catch? I fish Lake Gogebic about 3+ times a week. Early ice was great for #'s for walleye and decent this year also for size. I have 3 over 27 this year but none that hit the 30 inch mark but I heard of a few that have. I am a HUGE perch man and I am waiting to find them. I have done OK for #'s this year for perch but havent got a 2 lb'er yet, but I will. Let me know when you will be in the area if you dont know Gogebic I would be happy to show you some spots. March 24th is the 2nd annual "HOG A THON" it is an awesome perch contest. It is a tourney from 8am to 5pm and 1st prize is $500 and a free mount, not bad for a $25 entry fee.

So all in all #'s have been pretty normal for gogebic.

perch derby? Sounds fun, do you have an e-mail add. to see details about it? cannot make it this year but if there is that kind of perch in there would be interested in making it up there before that. What town is nearest to the lake? Any tips on where to stay would help. Thank you. Only had 2 perch sunday,10"-11". I wonder what a3pd. perch looks like grin.gif

Here is a link to for registration. There area alot of places to stay on Lake Gogebic with about 4 surrounding towns within 20 minutes. Perch Contest

Lake Gogebic is know by alot of the locals as the "DEAD SEA" but those are the people that EXPECT to catch fish in #’s and in size each time you go out. I am not saying it is a World Class lake but I have yet to find a better Lake to find Monster Perch through the ice. I have fished Devils and to me there is no comparison, Gogebic hands down for perch through the ice.

Maple Ridge is located on the West shore and it is within 5 minutes of my favorite perch hang outs, plus they are cheep if you are looking for a room. We stated the “HOG A THON” last year and we had about 100 participants we are looking to double that # this year.

Thanks for the info Perch king. I'm not sure if I will be able to make it out there this year but for sure next year. I used to stay at one of the resorts on north end of lake in Bergland when we used to snowmobile up there every year.

Now wife, kids etc..so harder to get away smile.gif

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
