Wayne Sheridan reports: With warm day time temperatures and night temperatures not low enough to adequately freeze the ice on the lakes, it is still dangerous to venture out safely on the lakes. There have been a few incidents of people going through the ice already. Please be cautious. We all wish you a Merry Christmas from all the members and sponsors at Canadian Angling. We hope Santa brings you your favorite fishing gear.
