I've fished this spot many times way closer over by the old candles lots of pike running over in that section but you definitely have to watch your steps with the goofy ice thickness varying so drastically I have seen guys go threw but it used to always be pretty shallow here

This spot used to be hot when I was young and the water levels were higher. Curious to see how this year does

You could have 12 inches of ice and a slight warmup or rain and it will be open water from south river point to metro point and then inner candles has short straight canals that connect to the river so there is current through those. Better places to fish if you don't know the area plus not many people out there to pull you out if you do go in.
