FISHING REPORT
8/22/14 2:59 PM CST
Fished LVD last week for the first time. A cold front came through early in the week and slowed things down. Caught some bass and northerns. Only raised one musky, but did not put in much musky time. The only follow I had was fortyish and chased a green bladed buck tail. Hopefully I will do better next time up!

I was just foshing there this week. I saw a muskie well into the 40's in the southwest corner. Another small tiger in the same bay. Had a follow off the pier in front of oak ridge resort and 2 strikes there. I was using black and white spinner baot and black and white bucktails for all the fish i did see. You really have to burn those baits through those weeds. This is the first time i ever fished here and its a lot of work

Need some help with this lake. I am fishing a tournament on it next weekend and I cant figure it out. To me it looks like the lake is too over run with weeds to easily fish it. Any suggestions on where to try and what to throw? I am fishing Musky. I tried a lot of spots but every cast comes in caked with weeds. Any help appreciated.

Will be heading up to LVD for the first time ever. Not sure what to target, just like to catch whatever is biting. C & R only. PM me if you can help, I understand if you don't. Will post a report when I get back.

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...

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?
