Safe ice not a problem for Devils Lake tournament
DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) -- Devils Lake Fire Chief Jim Moe says safe ice shouldn't be a problem for his department's annual late-January ice fishing tournament.
Moe says the recent cold weather has helped conditions after the warm early winter. He tells the Devils Lake Journal (http://bit.ly/AtBx9c) that there's more than a foot of ice on the lake's Six Mile Bay and there's no reason to cancel.
The department's 28th annual tournament is Saturday. The event typically draws thousands of anglers from area states and Canada.
