    If it’s the one in Marquette County I think it had a pollution / water quality issue a few years ago due to mining run off.

    I talked to a father and son fishing there about 2 years ago.. said they caught a handful of walleyes and some panfish .
    Good luck.
    Be curious to how you do if you care to post.

    Thanks for the report.
    Was there any other fishermen?
    Do you think you might give it a second try sometime?

    The goooooseee! I wouldnt waste much time there. Went there a few times maybe 3 with the boys for some sundown beers and fished off the train tracks. 9 lines out, Usually get a good walleye or two but overall is super slow.

    Hey Teggs....
    I remember talking to a guy a couple years ago .
    Told me he also fished by the train tracks around sundown.
    Said he caught a bunch of the hugest bullheads he’d ever seen.
    Average 14-15”.

    I have a few by me like that.
    They are close and it’s just good to get out without driving far or spending a lot of time getting there.
    And every once in awhile I suprise myself and do pretty good.
    How far is Goose lake from you?

    Kind of sad reading these reports. In my opinion Goose lake was one of the best perch lakes in the U.P. in the 60s and 70s
