ICE MELT!!!

Be careful over the next few weeks. As the temps go up, you will find more water on the ice. Wear cleated boots that are at least a foot high and waterproof. Water pressure will force water on top of the ice when you cut a hole. Shovel snow to make an island to get above it. Also know that caught fish will be swimming around on the surface so dig a channel to guide them to. Watch for discolored water and under ice currents. Try to fish in areas without currents. Pressure ridges will also begin to move and shift. Huge areas can break away or off the ice. Carry a throw rope in case ands wear floatation gear.

Tight Lines,
