After our first good cold snap of the winter a couple weeks ago, lakes across Northwestern Ontario finally are frozen after an unseasonably warm fall.
For those of us who enjoy ice-fishing, a new season is now upon us.
Ice conditions early in the season can be tougher to predict because the ice simply hasn’t had a lot of time to form. But it is typically good, strong ice since it has not been through any melting stages yet.
It is recommended there should be at least four inches of ice for walking, eight inches for a snowmobile, and 14 inches for a truck.
