CoolThanks Lloyd. A 2 year old post but always good to review the basics.

I am sure you know enough to always send the big guy (me) ahead of you on the ice. If he goes through you may not be able to get him back out but at least you didn't go in too. Right?

If you fish on the Blacks Fork Arm of Flaming Gorge, there are also some warm springs. Look for snow melted on the ice or cleaner,clear ice. Also, I've been on 8" to 12" of ice on the Blacks Fork Arm and have seen only small holes about the size of a beer can that were water. BE CAREFUL AND HAVE FUN!

One other warning when taking small children onto the ice. A 3-5 year old will actually go through an 8" diameter hole, so watch them carefully. I had my daughter almost go through a hole up to Deer Creek when she was 3. Fortunatly, she only put one leg through, but I have seen small kids jump with both feet on old holes, not a good move.
