I fished on this lake almost daily years back..  I drove my truck out when I saw others do it, then moved to an atv when I had a permanent...  I fished with others that also knew the lake VERY well.  One day, when there was 18" of ice on the lake, with a girlfriend driving my wheeler and me on the back holding a dog with a cut foot we went through the ice..  With 18" on the lake.  We knew the lake but it didn't help one bit. The issue was a permanent that was moved and it kept the ice thin but you couldn't tell....

Next day I went back to get  my wheeler out, the front tires were on 18" of ice the back on slim ice when it and we went down.  A matter of a 6x6 foot shanty area of thin ice with 18" all around. 

You want to drive a truck out now?  Point is it is never "safe" and always at your own risk. 

Yes I see other driving out, but I have also seen people jump off of a bridge but I'm not lining up to do it..  If you do drive out remember to keep your windows open and don't wear a seat belt.  That way you only lose your truck/car if something happens and not your life.

I'm not preaching.  Just a story to remind people the ice is never "safe".  We don't need to have a loss of life over a fish and "ease" of access.  Just remember the young man and his young son that lost their lives on bago a few years back..  It is closer to home as my wife knew the man from school.  Tragic accident.

Only a matter of time. I remember a person on foot going through when on most areas having well over what' out there now. There are springs and a river/ creek That runs through the lake. Heard of someone go through on an atv 15 yards from where 3 others were parked. In my opinion asking if the ice is safe to drive on "Are you feeling lucky".
