Ive been in one vehicle that broke through the ice and was a bit freaked out but had got out before it went under. Have any of you guys broke through and had to swim out of a submerged vehicle??

Never in a vehicle, only on foot. Last year I made the mistake of going one last time last spring. I made it on the ice just fine... Getting back off was not so fine. Went threw 3 times before I found an area to get back to shore. OOPS!!!!!.. sometimes even stupid people learn!

Just like ex-guy, couple few years back me and my brother were looking for a spot to get out on Minnetonka and couldn't find anywhere that the ice hadn't melted already too far from shore. Then it happened, my brother calls me and says hey found a spot on North Arm we can get onto the ice. There were other on the ice, so no big deal. We lower ourselves down the steep wood poles they have there, because the boat landing is water (hmmm - should of been our first clue). Anyway, got out a couple hundred yards and fished, caught a bunch of nice gills, it was a beautiful day, high in the mid 60s <-ouch, oh yea did I mention it was late March I think, don't think it was April but who knows. Anyway again, about an hour or two before we left from a successful trip I looked into shore and watched a guy get out about 2 feet and went right through the ice - he pulled hisself out and got in his truck and left. Now we decide to leave and got within 5 feet of where he went in and I stated hey Josh look that is where that guy went in - BOOM!! down I go catch myself on my elbows - my brother without hesitation, comes right over and pulls me out - glad he didn't go in to! Now we are stuck with the delima of getting off, the ice has melted off the shore. My brother said I just walked right by the landing and open water without hesitation and walked right through the 1 foot water by shore and got on dry land. Why I decided to walk by that landing and chance going through again, I don't know - must of been the cold water got to my brain and freeze dried it, but we made it safely off and that is what is important. Two fools wanting one last day of fishing!

Buy a new pro-v and you will never go thru rotten late march ice again!
Ever since I spent 20+ grand on my boat I can't wait to get to open water and that means going to the Mississippi reever in march!
Had to pull a friend out of rotten ice once and will never do that again. The next day some one drowned in that same lake!
So I avoid rotten ice and sit in a cushy boat seat and catch walleyes and saugers!
Good Luck!

Heading out with my buddy and his girlfriend on a metro lake years back. He is driving her car, DALE!! we scream you cant drive there (pressure ridge) he ignores us because it is too far to drive around the ridge he feels. So... car goes in, adrenaline takes over and we swim to good ice. About 5 years later I am at a party in the summer, I meet up with this girls dad and introduce myself. His response? You're the guy who put my daughters car in the lake! Turns out my buddy blamed me for it. We worked it out though, I made him take me out for beers.

A ZEN MASTER

    • Armageddon Constantine Inglourious Basterds(sp) Jeremiah Johnson The vacation movies   And I don't remember the name of the movie  but Nicholas Cage played a soldier in the Crusades who had to transport an accused witch to another town. Ron Perlman was his partner   Besides fishing, going to movies is another one of my joys in life  
    • I'm gonna list 5 Actors, if ya care to play, list your favorite movie that they have appeared in.   Ben Affleck  Keanu Reeves Brad Pitt Robert Redford Chevy Chase   *time out* Bonus 6th pick..... Nicolas Cage
    • I want to connect my iPhone to an old home theater receiver in my garage I am sure there is lots of ways to do this just trying to think of what would be best.   I have an iPhone with no headphone jack. Not a problem I currently put it on a dock with a speaker. That dock has a 3.5mm out that I should be able to convert into something that would work as an input to the receiver?     Here is the back of the receiver, its an old ONKYO that I had set up as a home theater many years ago. Its been collecting dust in the basement and I still have all of the speakers so I thought, hey I could really jam out in the man cave with some good speakers if I can get everything hooked up correctly   I could go 3.5mm to rca (red and white) and I think that would get me stereo and not mono?   Or could I go 3.5mm to digital optical or 3.5mm to coaxial? See all my options circled in red below?      
    • For this episode of the Duffman & Wanderer bass show I present to you the third week of August.   Wed is my usual day to get out. I figure it's before the Thurs night leagues and gives some space from the weekend warriors. Wife had a work party at our house, bonus water time for me. Too bad it was on one of "those" days. Sloooow. Talked to a regular, he agreed it was slow and chimed in "Two days ago though" Argh, that's all I needed to hear after only catching 3 bass in 5 hours. One went 4lbs, a 2ish, and a sub pounder........those little fish aren't usually where I'm fishing.   Gave it another go today...........short biters for me all week. Dealing with some pea green soup water, today was already clearer than Wed. That 4 was blind in one eye, seemed to be a lateral line strike. Maybe that's why they are short?   Had some action today at least, a smaller class of fish,  2.5 - 3 lb range. A half dozen, missed a couple, had two pop off, seen one.......20" class fish. Did the usual #@&%$,!, and casted again. I think I need to sharpen some hooks.  Still cranking, although I jig n pigged today for a tad......I never jig n pig. Forcing myself to try other things.   It's always interesting observing fellow fishermen. There's pressure everywhere these days. You recognize folks that look like they know what they are doing, and others that don't have a clue. I think I seen a 12" screen on a kayak this week!. I watch what people are using on a spot, and once they move on, I have no problem moving in. Fishing seems cyclical, some years are better than other's. That's fishing, hope you are out on the days when the "HOT" bite is going down.    Tune in next week for another episode.
    • To bad your not up here in Minnesota.  There are Ice houses on lots for sale all over this state.  You could stop in with a tape and get the dimensions you need.  
    • My thought was building an axle similar to this.   Then instead of using cranks I was going to use some 5000lb Square Bullydog jacks.   Then making a handle I could put my impact on to lift and lower the Ice House.    With having the camper, I already have the axle, electric brakes and springs.  Its just the matter of welding it up and making it work.  This is an example of the Clipper Ice, which Im trying to duplicate, just trying to find the dimensions.

I assume that they make them bigger... sorry that I don't have an answer for you. What sort of jack system are you putting in... electric or hand winch?
    • Good for you guys!  It's been an uphill battle for us so far!  Hopefully something stumbles into our baits soon.
    • I'm hunting no quota, have 3 for sure different bears maybe 4 on my bait. One is a giant boar. Headed back north tonight, will rebait an and set my stand in the morning. Only took 2 days for them to start hitting, my guess they were already in the area because of the mass quantity of acorns fall by the bait site.
