Above pic is second one ! Thanks. Guessing mid to high 20's . Didn't measure . Wouldn't have caught it without the lowrance. Buddy had a 2lber and was watching it come up on screen. Another fish came up with it, cranked up to 80ft , bam , then lost it , but hit hit again then ran 40ft back towards bottom. 3 of us( kids were sledding not fishing !) caught 14, lost 7 , big 2 are mid 20's and a 76cm. Buddy broke another big one off at end of day , need to check leader more often !

Awesome lakers Teamprotz. I think we were fishing right by you yesterday. Did you have a red and black eskimo tent and an all red eskimo tent popped up?

We were on my Quad and after breaking threw the snow the water was above the foot pegs .Our trail looked like a creek the next day.
In some areas you can just see the water under the snow .

Was out there on the 18/19th and I'd recommend sled or quad only. Lots of flood water as you head east towards the Saskatchewan side. Wasn't to bad around the provincial park. Ice was around 17 inches thick with the top 2 inches being white ice.
