SAFE ICE

6 posts in this topic

Early in the year when I am using my porty the first trip out to a spot I am a little scared I don't go on less than three inches. The second trip out to the same spot I will say the ice is SAFE. Later in the year after I have had my perm out for a couple weeks and have been driving I bring my kids with me. Before they come with the ICE IS SAFE. It bugs me when people say that ice is never safe. I believe that there is unsafe ice but there is also safe ice too. I am sorry for the rant but I am tired of people carrying on about the poor side of the sport.

You gotta remember why they need to say the ice is never safe. A full 51% of the population is unable to think for themselves. If you broadcast "safe ice", the next thing you know there will be some donkey trying to drive his 3/4 ton full size 1983 Suburban out on 6 inches of ice "thinking?" it's safe.

Id make a new thread on this in the Ice Fishing section, you will get more responses.

Also on topic now i think that people think ice is unsafe because you hear about the 1 guy who fell through, but not the 10000's who didnt

One is too many. Too many variables to account for to guarantee any ice is always 100% safe.
