Ice Traction
« on: Feb 08, 2017, 01:49 PM »
If there's a small slippery area that you have to cross where you're fishing and you don't have spikes or don't want to take the time to put them on, throw some wet fresh drilled ice chips on the slick area.  They freeze down to the slick ice in a couple minutes and are GREAT to walk on.

If you don't have cleats, go to Home Depot and get some of the smallest and shortest hex head sheet metal screws, and put a few in the lugs of your boots. I used to do this to my running shoes when it was icy, and you could put the spikes just where you want them for traction. You can take them out again when you are through.

Won't go on the ice without cleats. A good buddy fell & broke his elbow a few years ago., he decided not to wear them & left  his spikes in his car., ruined his season totally. Lesson Learned  ..
