Fished Vieux Desert for the first time this year today. I had 5 Muskies to the boat 1 over 50. Boated a 41" an my buddy boated a few Pike. We fished for about 5 hours an all the action took place in a little 45 minute window...

Had some luck this AM in the southwest corner in about 6' of water. Had two northern hit about 9am on a single hook weedless spinner. Both were about 18".

Fished Friday afternoon-evening 8:30) for Musky. A couple of lazy follows on weedless silver minnows tipped with a grub tail, and one hit on a topwater by an unknown species/size fish. Strong SE wind made drifting and covering lots of water easy, but to no avail until the lightning chased us off the water. The surface water temps were about 73 degrees. The weeds were just below the surface in most places. Good Luck. Don

Fished Friday, Saturday and Sunday and never saw a musky. Cold front really slowed the muskies down. Great weeds in LVD and N/S Twin, but no action. I think there were 50+ people fishing the event and only one musky got measured and the other got away at the net. Very few fish raised. Warmer weather should help improve the action.

Just got back from a tournament that included LVD and both Twins. Out of just shy of 40 guys only two fish were caught all weekend. We moved very few fish as well. There was an hour period on Saturday afternoon that provided the most action including 43-45 inch fish on LVD. All I can say is watch your moon periods for the best time of day to fish.

Just got back from spending a week on LVD big perch on small leeches on rocky shorelines in the 10 to 12 inch range mixed with the smallmouths. Largemouths in the weeds. No muskies on bucktails just smallmouth following the bucktails to the boat.

Flies weren't bad at all last week on the water...just the skeeters and that was predominantly on shore.

As far as the Ski's....cranks are the play right now in my opinion. Yellow/brown, perch type patterns. Little Jake, Grandma, Shallow Raiders. Buck tails didn't produce at all. Fish the rocks that the wind is blowing into if conditions cooperate. The more gust, the better. I'd also stick to the west side of the lake. Fished the hell out of the east and didn't see a single Musky. Pike, Walleye, Bass all hitting well. Consistent weather should help a ton. It was way up and down when we were there.

Good luck!

The morning news said 80% of the loons in Vilas County have abandoned their nests due to black flies. I'm heading up this weekend, do I need to pick-up a bug suit before I come? How bad are the flies out on the water? Thanks

Heading up to vieux desert in 2 weeks. Going to spend a week fishing the lake. Anyone have any thoughts on what would be the best bait and color to throw for some Muskie?

Going to be up at LVD in 2 weeks and just wanted to know if the mosquito situation has eased at all, or, if anyone thinks it will get a bit better in a week or two. Any feedback would be most appreciated!!

Just got up to the Lac last week with my friend and younger brother, between the 3 of us we boated 26 Northern in 2 days and 1 Tiger Muskie. The biggest northern boated was 25 1/4 inches and the Tiger was about 23 inches. A lot of good action but had trouble finding that monster but we saw about a 40 incher hanging out in the shallows, most likely spawning. Also pulled out a good amount of largemouth bass and some pretty nice rock bass. Can't wait to get back up at the end of the month!

We are new to fishing LVD and have had spotty action from muskies. Are more fish caught closer to the deep water or just in the weeds far from any deep water. Have fished mostly the eastern half of the lake. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Was up for weekend with family. Fri evening temps were just over 70.6. Fish were active, even had a small 14.75" walleye on a musky crank. Cold front Saturday dropped temps back to 64-65. Pike n Gil's with occasional perch were active. Muskies weren't cooperating for me but family lost n caught one Sunday and Monday night. Was fun to be out on LVD. Weeds look fantastic, slightly behind but very fish -able. Good luck

Fishing has been good. Weather has cooperated and the mosquitos are finally subsiding. A good time to fish LVD! Lots of mixed bags--some small and some keepers. Sunrise Lodge guests have caught and released 9 40 plus inch muskies the past 4 days.
