In my experiences on Lake Gogebic, bug hatches seem to happen all summer long, which keeps the Perch well fed and also growing at higher rates throughout the warmer months. The reason I believe there are so many bug hatches, has to do with the bottom content of the lake. While dropping anchor on a warm summer day to anchor the boat and float, I was shocked at how thick and soft the mud at the bottom of the lake actually was. It seemed as if the anchor sank through around two feet of soft muck before it hit anything solid. On another occasion, while retrieving my anchor I noticed a reddish muck unlike any muck I had ever seen before, which could be another clue as to the unique nature of this Perch paradise.
Another huge bonus Lake Gogebic offers is the peace and quiet. On the busiest weekend of the summer, there might be a total of 50 boats, which are spread throughout the lake! With over 14 miles of distance between the north and south shores of the lake, there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the lake and enjoy its beauty.
