I know what you mean eyeguy but if you cry wolf too often people don't pay much attention any more. Any time you are on the ice, in a boat, or in the woods you have to use good judgement, it's just that simple. 

Kind like the weather terrorists.🙄😉

all ice fishermen are not as brilliant as you guys. I like it when they make announcements.  nothing wrong with giving out advice when it's the advice givers that end up saving lives when c.r.a.p happens. 

 

Well played

People make the same complaints about severe weather warnings.  When the siren blows, I go in my basement and don't throw a fit when I emerge to find no damage...

 

FWIW, I suspect vast majority of injury/fatality involving ice was a person that was quite convinced they "knew" the lake/safety/conditions...

The DNR/sheriff's department are "advising"--They aren't barricading access.  There's no harm in advice--it's basically take it or leave it.

 

(Although, From my personal perspective, Sheriff/DNR advice does present a formidable barrier:  Normally, I don't listen to advice and know everything; When I'm ready to go out on the ice but my WIFE hears the warnings, then that provides the uncrossable barrier keeping me off the lake...  Statistically married men live longer and this is part of the reason why...😊)

Currently on Forest Lake (lake one) by the downtown access, measured 9" of ice up to about the weedline, then it tapered down to 5" out in 14' of water.
