FISHING REPORT
1/28/15 1:37 PM CST
Ice Depth: 14" Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 21° - 25° F
Was up on LVD Monday Jan 19th to Saturday Jan 24th. We fished each day and did very well. We caught northerns, gils, perch, crappie and a few walleye.

Stayed at Sunrise Lodge, the folks there are top notch!

Oh almost forgot, We used snowmobiles to get around the lake, I would not go out with an ATV or Truck as there is slush everywhere on the lake under the snowcover... Smile

mendham,

I've fished LVD for many years, usually in the Indian/Rice Bay area for panfish. Usually did really good on the gills especially. Been up twice this winter and have had no luck, nor have I seen nearly as many fishermen in Indian/Rice Bay as in past years. Heard there was a "kill off" last spring due to the late ice. Any truth to that?

Love fishing LVD! Any info appreciated.

The Phelps Lions Club had thier annual fishing jamboree Sat and reports from almost all were good action on panfish, northerns, and a few walleyes. Still some slush in spots but most of the lake is fine.4 wheelers and trucks out there in numbers but snowmobiles always work best.

Here on the north shore, base ice is now at 17". The snow cover has firmed up with the recent winds, however there are areas that will still hide the slush pockets. Snowmobiles and ATV's are still your best means of travel especially into "virgin" territory. Staying on the beaten path will give you more time to fish and not shoveling. For those who have been calling and wondering why the Misery Bay boat ramp is not plowed: It is a MI. DNR property and the road plowing is done by the Gogebic Co. highway dept. - two separate entities.

Was up this past weekend and would not advise driving a truck on the lake. The lake has pretty bad slush pockets that will stop a truck. The snow has done a great job insulating the slush. I was very lucky to get off the lake with my Chevy Avalanche which has brand new tires. After trying to move around Friday evening we packed up and headed south to Castle rock/Petenwell where there was ~ 17 inches of ice and hardly any snow on the lakes, which made for easy truck travel.

Hey Mr Eyes, Didnt mean to offend you, I just read many posts that if people would look back a little they'd find info they need. Also the weather has been really only condusive to making ice this last week. Should only be better than it was a week ago. Have a safe and enjoyable time.

Fresh Air,

Before you start throwing little jabs out there, how about realizing that the post your referring to will be 8 days old when I hit the lake tomorrow. So if you think 8 days is an up to date report on LVD lake conditions you should stick with soft water fishing.

Looking at coming up this weekend. Any word if people are driving trucks on the lake?

Thanks, Mark

A brutal week of weather is now behind us. Getting tough to move around the lake and the extreme cold made fishing miserable and catching almost non existent. The forecast is for 30 degrees Thur-Mon so things should get better.

Some nice northerns on the west shore on large shiners but the big story is COLD. People are driving trucks out there and the slush is pretty much gone--til you start drilling holes and then water seems to keep coming out of the holes. Easy getting around but 4 inches of snow expected today so we'll have to see but warmer temps are finally forecast for Sat onward.

Some nice repots of northerns and walleyes on the west shore and around the islands. Not much panfish news. Not sure if nobody is fishing for them or they are not biting. COLD is the word. Should help freeze up the little bit of slush around. We have seen some truck traffic this past week.

Tough walk out New Years day with equipment. Ten feet of water off west side w only one decent northern to show for it. Caught perch smaller than tip up minnows all day with one that was fillet-able. No Walleyes just a few other snake norther a. Snow on ice a great deterrent to move from spot to spot. But it was awesome to be out fishing on hard water. Could see fish down holes but nothing worth getting too excited about. My advice is stay near snowmobile trails unless you have wheels or a sled.

Ice Depth: 10" Conditions: Night Time Air Temp: 0° - 5° F
Currently here on the north shore we still have 10" base ice. There is approx. 16" snow cover with the slush factor underneath varying from nothing to 6" water depth in different areas. While running the snowmobile around to pack and expose the slush, the snow was running over the hood/shield. ATV travel would best be kept on the packed trails unless you want to spend your time shoveling instead of fishing. Photo shows a rainbow from the subzero ice crystals early Monday AM.
