Heads up out there!...watched a guy go through!
It was right by shore but he went in up to his nuts ..... Fished collins yesterday ... shoreline was under about 10" of water out about 10 to 15 feet.
I went on off to the side of the parking lot and had no trouble .. this other guy walked straight off and the ice broke and in he went.
Also watch out for old holes. .... the 8 or 10 inch holes grew quite a bit and then skimmed over ... a small person could break right through!
