The weather is warm! The ice is dangerous!

Once again, it is that time of the year when people are worried about the ice when it gets a bit warm. In my area, ice is 16 to 20 inches at this time. I'm all for peoples safety. But there always seems to be some unnecessary worry or even panic about the ice this time of the year. From your experience,  when is it time to really be careful,  and at what point should people stay off the ice?

I was out yesterday in the Tomahawk area trying for walleyes,  a good 30" of ice, first 6-8" was a bit soft, after that was real good, easy walking, no slush, or snow.

The sky might be falling but: today out on Winnebago (by AsylumBay), we drilled holes in ice that had about three inches of honeycombed ice (corn) on the top, some good ice, then the rest had tunneling from the bottom, up. No one drove out. Everyone walked out and a working crack stopped us cold. We were too chicken to try and cross it!...brawwwk!  On the way back my buddy crashed some ice in the shallows by shore.

Shorelines are getting bad on north side accesses. May have to go to lakes with south side access or bring a plank. Main lake ice is plenty safe in Waukesha co. Lakes

I was working at a house on bago today. the neighbor has really aggressive aerators going by his pier. no cones to warn anyone. open water all around it. a polaris ranger drove past 100 yards from it yesterday. be careful. you never know where its safe.

There is a big hole where a truck went through on Wednesday and was wondering what distance would you give to drive around it safely?
