Snow Could Make It Hard On Ice Fishing
There's a lot of snow out there and could make things hard on ice fishermen. The blowing snow is going to cover up cracks, weak spots, and 10 inch holes in the ice that you would normally see with the naked eye.
One way to spot a weak spot on the freshly fallen show is to watch for unexplained wet spots on the snow. This would indicate that open water is close by. Also take your spud along and probe the ice in front of you, not only to detect thin ice but holes as well. Those 10 inch holes have been known to break ankles in the past.
