On the opposite side should not be ice. Because fishing line is the wind, and because of this she will cling to ice cubes, as a result, we lose our time, spending it on the disengagement line. This will be a particularly important factor when a considerable depth. The hill of ice to windward, we can use as a small «stand» for the rod.

That’s why the best option would be a couple of times in a row to shake out the ice chips from deep holes, it will give us the opportunity, turn after turn to get closer to the danger zone. If, under the ice will be water, the lower edge of the hole will be wet . And if, seems the sand, it will also be seen, should immediately stop the rotation of the ice pick.
5) do Not abruptly remove the ice pick from the resulting hole, trying to quickly remove kakati. As for this purpose, came up with a ladle and a slotted spoon. It is advisable to carefully poke the ice pick, while rotating it in the opposite direction, maybe you should make a couple of revolutions, cutting off the available performances of ice on the bottom edge.
