Greetings from Arkansas

4 posts in this topic

Hello Vermilion FM'ers,

Been keeping up with the Big V since the move here to Arkansas and Norfork Lake. Looks like you all are well into the hard water season, but having some trouble getting good ice. Norfork will not freeze, and the possibility of snow looks pretty grim here. Gotta admit, 60's in December has been nice though. Just thought I would touch base with world on Vermilion. FM is a great site to stay in touch with Vermilion, and I will check in regularly. Drop a line and say hello.

Doug, Good to hear from you. Yea ice sucks to cut to the point. We have only 3 inches out in the main lake in one area. Thats what happens when it freezes and then you get a big blanket of snow. Cold weather hasn't helped make ice too much either. Just have to give it time. Good to hear things are going well down there. Keep in touch!!!

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
