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:

Come on guys, don't make sport of someone dying!!  We all have had a lapse in judgement one time in our lifes.

 

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.

As a Native one thing we were always taught, the ice isn't safe until the white guys quit falling through. :crazy:

 

Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much. :lol:

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

 

 

 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.

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye.

    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
