Ice Fishing
How do I know if the ice is safe for ice fishing?

Never assume ice is safe, no matter how strong it seemed last week. Be cautious every time you venture out. Warm daytime temperatures can weaken ice, creating dangerous conditions. Always make test holes and examine the thickness as well as the quality of the ice. Never go ice fishing alone, and your gear should include a flotation device, a length of rope, and ice picks.
