Stay Safe on the Ice!

We enjoy a day ice fishing as much as any of you; but it’s important to stay safe out there!.. Especially with the temperature increasing as we get closer to spring. Here are some tips to keep you and your family safe ice fishing:

  • Utilize the iFish App to check latest ice thickness’ reports; however always double check thickness. Especially if the weather has recently warmed up
  • Use the standard rule of not walking on anything less that 4″ & driving on anything less than 12″
  • Travel slowly while driving on ice, keep your seat belts off, have your doors unlatched so they can be open quickly in case of emergency
  • If you fall through the ice, get out of your vehicle, crawl onto the ice belly-down & use spikes to pull yourself up. Remove wet clothing & get to a warm place as soon as possible
