I appreciate the help

My intention is to stay within 100' of shore. The water is no more than 5' deep there, and I can run home from wherever in 10 minutes. (however I know from my one icy capsize that it would be an extremely long 10 minutes)
I appreciated everyone's advice and I get it; bad idea.
The explanation of how lakes freeze was interesting; I didn't know that, but it makes sense. The lake is 250' deep and I am told it never freezes in the middle. I am talking about near the shore though; my neighbors claim it remains open from waves. I used to have a place on the opposite side and it sure froze there. We'll see in a month or two.
