    Good to eat? Yes they are. We used to get a lot ice fishing back in NY. I saved all of them in one bag in the freezer, adding to the bag each time we went out. I then took them all at once and ran them, Y bones and all through a meat grinder two times. Then I mixed the ground fish with Italian flavored bread crumbs and ran them through one last time. Then I made fish patties and froze them. When we wanted pike, then we simple thawed them out and fried them in a little oil, served on a bun, good eating.

    Better check that, I THINK (I could be wrong) but isnt Bait not allowed on that lake? I thought it was like Biglake, single hook unbaited lure.

    i am pretty sure you can use bait there just like you can use bait on big lake in the summer or in winter only for pike in the winter though and there are rules on big lake how you may present and time of day i beleive and so on but easy to understand

    Look on page 35 of the Southcentral regulations, right hand side. In Nancy Lake, anglers may fish for northern pike through the ice using five lines from November 1- March 15th, between 8am-5pm. Hook gap at least 3/4 inch, whole baitfish suspended off the bottom; all other fish must be released.
    Your bait stinks and your boat is ugly

    Aw, ok. I remember reading you could only use an unbaited single hook. I wasnt sure if they're were any stipulations. Thats why I mentioned might want to check. Thanks for clarifying that.

    nancy lake is poor pike fishing nowadays due to adfg's new law that states no pike caught may be released. they are really thinned out and you have to work for them
