Threre are basically three basic places to head out on. Graystone restaraunt on the west end, Riveira public access on the NE side off CR #1, and the Pelican Bay public access on the east side on State #78.

I have been out of Graystone back in December before the ice was good. Usually there are some roads plowed out to some of the fish house clusters. Graystone has a voluntary pay box.

I went out of Pelican a little over a week ago. There was a pretty good path out to the first group of houses, but trucks were freelancing all over the place. The ice at that time was 14-15 inches.

With this cold, I would venture that some more ice was made.

Prior to the last warm up, the the lake had a heavy snow load and there were some big slush fields. The ice thickness was very incosistant.

For tips, I would get you bait at Ken's tackle on the west end, and they are very good at getting you started in the right spots.

Good luck!
