Good advice Ron.....as an avid ice fisherman I've experienced all the conditions. 

I have fished ALONE on three inches of good black ice, but spent most of my time telling idiots not to walk anywhere near me....the morons don't even check the thickness themselves....they see you out there and assume it is safe. NOT SO!
Go ahead...play with your food!

Keep in mind, too, that ice weakens with age.

According to the Army, for instance, 6 inches of new ice with support an Abrams.  

Unfortunately, how long before it becomes old ice remains an open question. Best bet: When in doubt, stay off it. 
But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thanket
