Lake Gogebic-plenty of ice

   This western lake in the Upper Peninsula has ice good enough to support shanties and snow machines. That's not all the good news if you ice fish. The word is the walleye bite is good. Perch are so-so, and Northern pike are on the prowl.
   We drove nearly 10 hours from Oakland County to arrive at The Timbers Resort which would be home for a couple of days while we tested our piscatorial skills against those of the fish. I'll let you know how that all works out.
   For the snowmobile set there is decent snow for sleds as evidenced by many on the trails, at gas stations and in the local restaurants and watering holes.
   Funny this weather. All across U.S. 2 through Escanaba there was hardly any snow. After turning north, passing through an area called Helps, we finally had snow on the ground.
   It's going down to around 10-degrees tonight. Ice fish in begins for our group tomorrow. I hope the bite is still on.
