  Our Hog-A-Thon is the most spectacular ice fishing contest you'll find.  It is held on the 2nd Saturday in March and features the Famous Lake Gogebic Jumbo perch.  You won't believe your eyes when you land one of these hefty beauties.  Gus calls our perch "Teeter Pigs" because when you place these hogs on their bellies they're so fat that they don't teeter over.  At the Hog-a-Thon dinner we award lots of cash and door prizes for catches of Perch, Walleye, Northern Pike, and even that bottom feeding Sucker.  See the Hog-a-Thon page for photos, and full details of the coming event. 



We are in the process of developing a comprehensive area information packet.  It will include the Lake Gogebic Times publication and additional information regarding area businesses, attractions and events.  Our area offers a great many waterfalls & Sight seeing excursions for your enjoyment.  Here are a few examples:

Presque Isle Park, Lake of the Clouds, and Lake Superior


Baker's Falls, and much more.
