Hi everyone,

My parents have a place on lake Ogemaw and was thinking about going up on the weekend of Jan 14. Just wondering if anyone has checked it out and how much ice there is. Any info would be greatly appreciated...

Default Is it really that good?

Is Ogemaw really a good place to fish? I've been wondering about it. My cousin just bought some land right on the lake and we're talking about going up there and trying it out. What kind of fish does it hold, how deep is it? etc.etc. If you can give me any sort of information that would be great. PM me if you want. Thanks,

Sandman

I've never icefished it but during the summer I've caught lots of northerns,perch,crappie and gills. My cousins have been catching walleye in the summers for the past couple of years. I'm going to give it a couple more weeks to freeze up. I'm not sure how much ice if any there is now but anyone with info it would be appreciated.

I've got a place on the lake it's pretty good fishin
Pike are 20-35 inches lots of bass some perch n gills and it's been stocked with walleye the big walleye this summer on report was around 25 if I remember correctly
It's has some big channel catfish in it too
But about the ice I just got off the phone with the owner of Kay-jacs a great place to get all your quick fishin needs or beverages and munchies
He told me there's 5 inches and some anglers fishin but that it's been slow so far
Or there just tight lipped lol
Whatever it is I'm bout to head up and find out for myself
I'll keep you all posted
Let's get fishin

Default Ice on lake

My father has been on this lake for 45 years and still enjoying it. I personally have caught hundreds of northerns while ice fishing. My uncle live on the lake all year and they say the lake had a lot of open water on it. This was Monday night so perhaps it has froze over since. Was planning on a trip up this weekend but if no ice, no way. Anyone else able to report ice conditions?

Well I just got back from ice fishing on lake ogemaw from Sunday till today
Had lots of fun caught some good fish and can report some thinner spots of ice but no open ice
Everything I cored was 7 -9 inches and I checked and fished all over the lake and drank a few beers so I had alil extra courage along with a friend to get me thru till I found that it was nice and solid and safe
I ate three meals a day on the ice on my grill and my only regret was that I left the quad at home
Had a chance to talk and fish with some others anglers out there too and they were catching fish to
Grabing the quad and my girlfriend right now and heading back up tmrw thru the weekend so come on up and fish on
