As this winter has been so up & down. The ice freezes only to thaw a day or 2 later,so ice fishing has been not safe. These 2 guys went out in this little tin boat one day the ice had only just formed. Withing half an hour they pulled up this huge whitefish. Although not a smart thing to do. They had a bit of trouble getting back after sitting out there for a few hours. Just around the bend the water was wide open. Fish huts are out just at the spot were the open water and ice forms further up the lake. Not something I would class as being safe.
