Onalaska Death

Recommended Posts

Bodyman's family experienced a tragic event, a death of a family member. PLEASE BE AWARE of any dangerous situations while enjoying the outdoors! What we've done time and again can be taken for granted untill ONE fateful trip ends it all. Bodyman's uncle, even at a ripe old age of 75 met an untimely death. What made him feel alive and gave him joy also took his life....It's ironic. Mother nature is not to be tested. In the end she'll always win. Heads up out there whether it be in the woods, on the lake, or in every day activities, life is too precious to be taken for granted. May God bless Bodyman's family and friends during this trying time. Bodyman, a prayer goes out to your family from your "extended family" at Fishing Minnesota. Here's Bodyman's post........................................Author Topic: Lake Onalaska Death

A fisherman fell thru the ice on Lake Onalaska yesterday and drowned. It hits close to home for me because he was my uncle. He taught me alot about fishing thru his life time. At age 75 he was a true river rat. He lived for it and died doing what he loved. I know he knew the ice he was on was shakey at best having fished that area for as many years as I can remember. He had fished it the day before with success and had taken a buddy with yesterday to see if the bite was still on. I guess he pushed his luck to far and paid the ultimate price. I am angry with him because I know he knew better than to put himself at such a risk. I will miss him. Ice is never safe no matter how much time you have logged on it. Be careful out there.

Bodyman, My sympathies are with your and your family. I'll bet I fished beside him a couple of time or more but did not know him.

    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
