I bought a UTV for this winter with a plow. I want to plow out onto the ice for ice fishing. Not sure how I should set the plow when I do this. For those of you that plow out onto the ice, do you let the blade run on the skids, or do you raise the skids and let the blade run directly on the ice?

I would leave the plow up and inch riding on the skids thus you would catch less shattered or uneven ice with the plow.

Walking on ice is easier with some snow versus smooth ice ooo smiley .

I agree with Trickytackle, also if you leave a little snow on top of the ice you will have more traction for both plowing and walking on after your finished.
