I am very careful on the ice and don't take chances. As far as don't go in ice fishing,never fish alone. Always fish with a buddy or make sure there are people fishing the same ice you are on. I have since then bought a flotation ice suit and I never fish alone.

    I too have a float suit. The only time Iíll go by myself is when the ice is 8Ē and still building in an area/ spot Iíve been fishing daily. I still spud my way out and watch for old holes from other icers that may have partially froze over. If no one else is on the ice Iím very hesitant to go on it. Most times Iíll wait til someone else shows up and weíll walk out together. I donít fish areas where nobody else has been on. And I have all my safety equipment with me in case someone or myself goes in. Iím always aware that no ice is totally safe. Iíve been icefishing for around 25 years now.

    I donít mind the cold but this snow makes the icefishing much more difficult. The heavy wind might help push the snow off the ice in certain areas allowing the cold air to make more ice. Iím not walking thru 15 inches of snow to fish.

    Like the old sportsman told the the careless fisherman, ďIf youíre going to continue to fish that way at least keep some bait in your pockets so maybe weíll get a mess of fish when we pull you out!
    Pass the "Sportsman Baton" on before you're gone, promote values for others to hunt and fish upon.
