Default Ice Safety

I know that when out on the lake to stay way from the rocks and other objects that absorb heat and will melt the ice. Stay away from drifts because the can act as an insulator, but I was just wondering what is the difference between clear ice or foggy ice or ice with bubbles in it. I tried doing a search but was unsuccessful. And other tips in understanding the ice would be great.

While on the search came across the link for this video about what to do if you go for a swim while ice fishing. Stay safe.

Hi Mik,

Above is a link I found that discusses some of the things you are asking about. I found it by doing a google search on ice safety. There were many more as well.

Hope it helps.

clear Ice is good ice right now i am fishing a private lake in loveland and the thickest ice i have is 3.25" the shoreline is the scary part its only about 2.25" but 3" of clear ic ewill hold any man and his stuff. When the ice turns cloudy be carefull it is getting air in it and softening from thawing during the day you can see this when you drill a hole. 6" of clear ice will hold a car.

info from another cheesehead

Ive had a 1974 buick century on 5" of ice I wish i would have known this before I stopped but all ended good
