Ice Thickness Guidelines From Crow Wing County Sheriff

Sheriff Todd Dahl reminds everyone that ice is just beginning to form on area lakes and not lakes have enough ice to support fishermen or motorized vehicles.  He passes along these Ice Thickness Guidelines from the Minnesota DNR:

2" or less - STAY OFF
4" - Ice fishing or other activities on foot
5" - Snowmobile or ATV
8" - Car or small pickup
12" - 15" - Medium Truck

If you venture out on unsafe ice, you are putting the lives of first responders and yourself at great risk.  No recreational activity is worth taking this chance.
