Try not to break the ice

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 13:21:28 EST

When looking to ice fish, hike or snowmobile on Maine's lakes, look for bluish ice that is at least 4 to 6 inches thick, in order to support people and their gear. Even if the weather has been below freezing for several days, don't guess about ice thickness. Check ice in several places. Use an auger, spud, or axe to make a test hole, beginning at shore and continuing as you go out.
