Here is the current situation from Quartz Lake as of 19 Nov:
Ice is about 7-8 inches and I saw three different vehicles driving on the lake like nothing to it...not for me, I would waiting a little longer. The craking and popping sounds every time the started racing around made me very uneasy.
2 fish caught in 4 hours. 1-silver about 12 inches and this rainbow below, went right at 20 inches according to the "stick of knowledge". Ian's beast this last week is still big fish for this year. Deadstickin bait is all I was doing. Wish I could have got a picture with both fish, but I was fishing ala han solo. I think I am going to start and try Harding, the ice should be ready over there by now. Did not see a lot of action with the aqua-view.
