I have witnessed first hand someone falling through the ice thinned by a dock bubbler. Pretty scary stuff. I can't imagine anyone getting much more than a soaker with an 8-10inch hole from an auger. How does one "guard" their holes?

You sit there and menacingly wave your auger at anyone that gets near your hole!

Wondering if this relates to spear fishing. In and around Lake St. Clair, Iíve seen pictures of fisherman who spear fish for pike/musky in shallow waters where Pike tend to migrate in the winter months. Openings are made with what appears to be with a chainsaw and sized around a 2x3 foot hole where someone could easily fall into it I suppose, if not careful.

Canít see how this would apply to an augered hole by any means as Koke referred to but that would be hilarious seeing a bunch of guys standing on the lake waving their arms crazily until their holes freeze back over

I'm pretty sure that's illegal unless you're a status card holder.

My mistake, couldíve been an American picture as Lake St. Clair is split both American and Canadian. Couldnít imagine being on the ice and spearing a fish, something just doesnít seem right. This is a screen grab from a Lake St. Clair fishing board
