Howard Taylor (73) and Robert Shammo (65) both of Shreve, Ohio, and
Stanley Puster (60) of Lakeville, Ohio. Driving an ATV on their way to
ice fishing, they lost
their way in a whiteout off the west shore of Middle Bass.
Note that the 1940, 1955 and 1986 fatalities occurred within a few
hundred feet of each other, and only a few hundred feet off the
southwestern tip of Middle Bass Island. The tip, called called Colby's
Point, is where the currents are always the fastest in the channel between
South Bass and Middle Bass islands. So the thinnest ice is always there.
