going to be wandering out yellow, twin lake, trout that area anyone been on the ice!! or too early

be per previous post the lakes have ice on them in the okanagan BUT it is not good ice and not too thick.
i was by pillar lk near falkland the other day. there were tracks around the edge of the lake then some that went right across.......stupic but he appared to make it! why would anyone walk across on thin ice when the fishing was done within 10 ft of shore.

I have never done Ice Fishing before. Only started fishing last year. One or two guys have threatened to take me with them. I found an ice fishing rod for $5, so I guess that is a start.

Is this just for the sport or do the fish taste good. I guess they would stay fresher in the cold.

I have been told that Darke Lake may be nearly ready but please heed the warnings.
