The recommended minimum ice thickness for new clear ice is 4 inches for ice fishing, 5 inches for snowmobiles or ATVs, 8-12 inches for cars or small pickups, and 12 to 15 inches for medium-size trucks. Melting and refreezing of ice makes it less stable, especially in areas with springs or where water flows under the ice such as near lake inlets and outlets.

Enjoy the Experience!

Hi justnorth! Welcome to My Fishing Pals! I appreciate you coming aboard! That's a nice site you got. I signed up in the forums. Maybe we can get some others to post there too. I think we should all help each other out where we can.

As for the ice, the DNR did a press release to the news stations this morning on current ice conditions. They are saying thet even though it has been cold it is not safe. The article has yet to hit there web pages as of yet. Somebody was killed somewhere, but I didn't get the location. I will post it here when I get more details.
