SAFE ICE

Recommended Posts

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.

the reason ice is never safe is it could change over night without you knowing it. For example, if you drove on the ice one day but then that night a spring opened up or what ever making that ice, that you thought was safe, thinner

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.

    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
