Spearing rough fish through the ice?

I've been seeing thousand plus schools of buffalo as well as fairly high numbers of gar this season with the clear ice in SE WI. I can't catch the gar but had an idea. What if I spud a 12" square (since hole size restriction is 12") and put a couple small minnows on either side of me to attract the gar and then spearing them. Has anyone ever speared thru the ice for rough fish? Seems like it would be a blast. I checked the regulations and didn't see anything saying you can't do it on hard water. Thoughts or tips?
