Upper Peninsula Weekly Fishing Report

March 2, 2018

Upper Peninsula

Keweenaw Bay: Still had ice with snow cover on top however the snow could be gone by the end of the week so anglers might want to bring cleats for easier travel on the ice. Lake trout fishing was fair off the Whirl-I-Gig. The whitefish bite was slow. Splake fishing was hit-or-miss in eight to 40 feet. Smelt fishing was great after dark but only fair during the day.

Lake Gogebic: Was producing a few walleye and pike. A few more perch were caught on the north end.

Little Bay De Noc: The ice remains although travel can be hampered by rutted or crusty snow. A few anglers reported good walleye catches down near the Ford River in 20 to 30 feet when jigging rapalas. Other walleye reports remain slow with spotty catches reported throughout the Bay.… Read the rest
