Ice Safety Thickness Chart. Ice IS NOT the same thickness all over. Stay away from multiple pressure cracks on the ice. When ice fishing, spread out because crowds can add too much weight to the same area. Moving water wears ice from underneath, so the ice may look thicker than it really is.
I know there are topics for homemade tip ups, automatic fishermans, etc. I just thought we could wrap it all up in one by showing ANYTHING homemade that could save anyone money or make someones ice fishing trip easier.
