There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down. :(

Just said he's been down a long time.....hours. Guess it's a recovery now.. Every friggin' year...it ought to be MANDATORY that you carry and use a spud when venturing out on the ice...or wear one of the ice fishing suit PFD's.

The real crazy thing is it looks like the air boat went almost to the middle of the lake to look for him? He must have had some spot in mine he was trying to get to way out there? :crazy:

Yes, it's sad that people push the limits without being prepared.  People are anxious to get out.  I checked this lake tonight and I think I was the third person to set foot on the ice already.  The first spud check was already frozen solid.

Got this from another site. Sounds like he wasn't even fishing just drinking and out for a walk? :crazy:

I came from Brainerd to Mpls yesterday. It looks like the lakes here froze the same day as ours. The whole state pretty much got cold all at once. Gotta love that early ice but it does take some common sense, not worth dying for.

That gives a new meaning to the phrase "drop by for a cold one".

Stopped by Coon lake access on way home 20 min ago. Unbelievable portable 150 yards from access 20 FOW. Watched person drill 2 holes with hand auger each side of shack 11 and 12 turns on the auger to open hole. White ice just past shack was open water late Thursday.  At least his white pickup is at the landing to identify him or them if "sad senseless" happens again.

HA!!!! :lol:  One thing I just don't get....well. a few things...no spud, and just because it's 2" thick in one spot, does NOT mean it's 2" somewhere else! There ARE currents, ya know....duh. No way am I gonna walk my big butt out on 3" of ice, much less 2". We always say best thing to do is make the fattest fish buddy walk out first..then follow. :grin:

Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...

mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe.

I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.

 Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though. No use debating, though.

Funny stuff!!  Reminds me of my childhood in western Canada  we use to here comments like that on a daily basis between the two races. Nowadays other races get offended with anything said. Mr. Uran not only was what you wrote funny, it is half true :)

I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
