In June last year, My 8 yr. old son and I brought our ultra light spinning gear rigged up with 2 lb. test and a handful of 1/16 oz Gamagotsu Shaky-Head jigs. I had a pack of white twisty tails and a pack of chartreuse. We would make long casts and swim them back occasionally bumping the bottom. The white worked so good that we never tried the chartreuse. The light gear made the northerns a real challenge. We really loaded up on eater walleyes and perch. The perch weren't jumbo but were definitely keepers. I couldn't find any bigger walleyes. The biggest was maybe 2 lbs. I think I spent 1/2 the time taking my kids fish off. It was a blast for him at least.
don't sound like too bad of a hike might be worth it
We went into Bog for 3 days in the beginning of September a couple of years ago todo some Grouse hunting and fishing. Nice little lake. Quite a hike to get in there. We all agreed that the portage was longer than what is marked on the map. I would say that it's great for a weekend or maybe 3 days but not more than that since it's small and there are no trips out of there to keep you busy. If you go there you should take the campsite in the middle of the north side of the lake. It's by far the nicest.
Fishing was decent. Caught a bunch of small Walleyes and Jumbo Perch. Plenty to eat but nothing to brag about. We were there during a bit of a cold front but I bet the late part of May or early part of June would be great fishing.
The only other boat we saw was a local who came in for the day with his dog to fish. If the locals walk all that way to fish for the day I imagine it's known for good fishing around the area.
Hello friends, just thinking about a short trip to the BW in the spring/ early summer, anybody had any luck fishing Bog lake? thanks
