So I was out on a backwater last night with a buddy. I know the ice is getting sketchy, so I had a head lamp, float suit, ice picks, and had my spud bar and a rope in case. When I whacked the spud bar on the ice, it took 8 good thumps before I got through, however, as I was walking and checking, I got to a spot that only took 5 thumps and started wondering how much ice we had. I guess I was wondering what do you all judge as good ice going by spud bar whacks? Four, five? Just curious and I know all ice is different and what not. Thanks!
