Back in the day when I sauger fished, I carried a 5 gallon bucket with me to the ramp.
The duck hunters would have the ramp all iced up from pulling their trailers out in sub freezing conditions. I would get there about daylight. The ramp would be ice from top to bottom. I would get the bucket out and spread play sand or safe-t-salt or water softener crystals on the ramp. I would only put it where my tires would be. worked every time I needed it. On a couple occasions I would back down the ramp then slid until my back tires were in the water. Then I would salt the ramp to pull out. Maybe that's why I quit winter fishing below freezing weather.
