            Delong Lake is fine for drilling. I saw a couple nice rainbows caught and some small burbot and silvers just an hour ago. Shrimp and crawlers.
            I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

                    In the valley there is an annual limit of 10-20" rainbows from stocked lakes and 2-20" rainbow from lakes not stocked according to what I read in the regs. Don't know about an ice road on Big Lake, that seems a bit early but I did see a small car on Lucille Lake on Sat.

                      Big Lake ice

                      I was at Southport Marina on Friday. no ice road and no-one had been on the ice. I saw 5 drilled holes about 40' away from shore. we measured them and there was 7" of ice.

                        The State usually measures but this is not really a priority for them because they say that budget cuts and other oblgations take them away from this. I guess that safety is not a priority for them and we will have to rely on each other to make sure the ice is safe. Checkout the ice safety video http://www.exn.ca/video/?Video=exn20020325-icewater.asx

                            Does Anyone Ice Fish on Sand Lake

                            Just curious what part of the lake might be good and if anyone has any tips for catching the Pike there in the winter time. I am looking forward to trying it.
