Smallmouth Bass


Lake Gogebic is known as a good smallmouth bass fishing lake.  There are a lot of 2 to 3 pound bass in the lake with some bigger fish in the 4 to 5 pound range as well.  Many anglers will come to this lake to fish for walleye and smallmouth bass and in some of the rocky areas on the lake, you can catch both species of fish in the same location.  Late spring and early summer are probably the best times to target smallmouth bass because they are all over the shallows, but if you know how to fish deeper water, you should be able to catch some nice fish here in the summer and fall as well.
