Be safe out there!

Large emergency response today at Georgetown Lake when the first call came in that 2 boys had fallen through the ice. At least 8 or 9 first responders showed up quickly to help 2 fishermen. Both were OK thankfully. Can't be careful enough! A spud bar is your best friend next to a PFD if it's even close to questionable.

Were they close to the bridge?

Georgetown sucks for that. I fished it once last year and watched 3 people fall in within an hour. Uneducated tourists and an ice skater. None were prepared.

Did they find anyone? I was out there by the rest room when they all arrived (around 3:00). They then all headed down by the dam
