Been a lot of folks ice fishing around the Oxbow area here in western MA. Not my cup of tea; I don't fish hard water.

stomping on the ice is not a fool-proof method of checking the safety/thickness of ice.  spend a few extra minutes drilling, chopping or chipping a few holes to make sure you have at least 3 or 4 inches before heading out on the ice and double check near underwater springs to make sure ice is safe over them too.
