Don Wilkins, from Glasgow, found a nasty gas pocket on Peck yesterday (Sunday, January 15) just south of B marker in 80 feet of water.

The 18-20 inch thick ice was surrounded the open water that Wilkins said would swallow up his side by side.

Even though Fort Peck has up to 20 plus inches of ice, anglers are urged to use caution while traveling around the lake to avoid a disaster. Slowing down so you can see what is in front of you and being able to stop before any obstacles is highly recommended.

The ice pocket is where the boat is on the map, which was provided by Wilkins.
