Heres a question, how does this chart vary depending on the amount of snow, ice, and water buildup on the ice? Do those variables not come into account pending people going onto the ice? I am just wondering, not being a smartass...

Back in 1980 ice fishing on the big narrows lake just out side of Lincoln, ME, I fell thru the ice, drilling holes near an inlet, the water was only chest deep ~ but the current was pretty good ~ I was so cold so fast, I hardly made it out. One of the most miserable days of my life. That I must say was the last time I was ice fishing wink2

I miss my Uncle Lewie....However;
I know he's with me on every fishing trip.
