Why bother breaking thick enough ice to walk on? A paiul of warm water with a bit of blue vegitable dye and spread in on the ice-it looks like open water, Also black poly looks like open water too (from what I heard).
I late season I use combo of field and water decoys when there are 1/2 to 1" thick ice and not too strong of winds.
