It went through a hole in the ice

Recommended Posts

Couple of years ago, my buddy was up from Arizona and we went to the eel pout festival on Leech, he put his retainer in a cup on a shelf near his bunk. When he woke up the next morning the cup was floating in the hole and the retainer was gone. Needless to say Momma wasn't none to happy. Borrowed a camera from somebody and looked for it. No Luck finding it.

It's incredible, really - if you figure how much area an 8" hole really is - how many things can fall EXACTLY into it!! Last year I dumped a two way radio into one - right in the middle of an Ice Team Trap Attack! 2 years ago it was my cool telescoping ice skimmer, slipped off my tub and zoop, right into the $%@#$%@ hole.

My truck keys fell in at the beginning of the Warroad derby... that was nice.
Another day out on 16 Mile, the boom box managed to fall down the hole. That was kind of funny, though. We could hear it playing for quite a ways under water.

Had a friend drop his digital camera in a hole blush.gif Another friend has lost a few Polar tip ups down a 10" hole... He's good for at least 2 a year. An 8" hole makes so much more sense grin.gif

Hey...I losted my camera off the boat, not down the hole! wink.gif Who was that?

I also told some folks on another "ice fishing" board about the polars going down a 10" hole. They bashed me a little claiming it "could never happen". rolleyes.gif

I've lost a pair a sunglasses, a couple pair of needlenose and a cell phone. Thankfully, I did not notice an increase in peak hour calls.

I dropped myself down a hole in the ice!

We were hunting rabbits along the Crow River many years ago when I was still a lad, it was late December and it had been cold for quite a spell. The temperature the day we were hunting was close to zero.

We wanted to hunt the other side of the river and first the biggest one of us went across, thinking nothing of it, then the next and the next and then me, the lightest of the crew.

"Crash" the ice broke under me, right next to shore, but the water was deep. The only thing that kept me from going under and being swept away by the current, was that it happened so fast, I went down still clutching the shotgun and it wedged on the ice.

My friends got a big branch and were able to pull me out, buton the ride home in the old 49 Plymouth, or Dodge, whichever it was, I got froze up pretty good!

I lost some skin off my toes and my big toenail on one foot, but otherwise, no worse for wear.

I bent down to clean the ice out of the hole and my cell phone and diposable camera fell down the hole. The Camera stayed on top of the slush and the phone went to the bottom of LOW (34'). Caught about 50 walleyes that day.

My favorite zippo lighter and a handful of ice rods. Nothing too major yet, but I did watch a guy set a full bottle of booze in an ice hole once. At the same time he did it, he said "watch, it floats" Well, it might have if he would have poured us each one first and then put the cap on. It was on the St. Croix River so my only hope is that some lucky person finds it some day drifting up on a beach somewhere. I hated to see good Canadian Club go to waste.

This story was told to me by a neigbor a few years back and I believe him and his son-in-laws account of what happened. His son-in-law and father were angling out of a spear house which was very close to another house where someone was fishing. His son-in-law claimed a black lab exploded out of the hole and climbed into there house and started shaking itself off, the son-in-laws father almost had a heart attack and had to be taken home, he never fished out of a spear house again. The lab had supposidly fallen into the hole and got under the ice in the other spear house, and got disorientated and ended up in there spear house.

I have angled out of a spear house and have had musk rats come out of the hole onto the floor and that is quite a shock, I cant even imagine what went through that old mans mind when a dog appeared.

I lost probably 4 ice scoops through the ice on Red Lake last winter, 1 or 2 flashlights, and the most horrifying thing i have ever lost to the hole was a can of beer. We managed to catch our buddies rattle reel and tied a beer to his line, well when he walked back into his house, we atrted playing the line like he had a fish and sent the beer but it never made it there ;-(

I was wondering if anyone has lost something they really liked through a hole in the ice. Last year i was walking out on a metro lake, i drilled a hole gave the auger to my buddy so he could drill his, as i looked down, my sunglasses happen to fall. Right through the hole. they were the cool ones, the big Maverick sunglasses the cops where. i loved them. i bought a new pair, but i'll never look through a hole in the ice with them on again.

My dad looks like Al Linder, does that make me a better fisherman?
I believe so.

Wait, wait. I think we are all missing something. How does one person lose 2 trucks and one ATV thru the ice?

Only thing Ive ever lost thru the ice is my imagination. Ice fishing has replaced it. Now I close my eyes and instead of dreams, its thoughts of new augers I dont need and new shacks I dont need. Wife asked if ice fishing is all I think about. I told her she has asked my that same question about hunting and sex.

In 1992 while fishing Minnewawa in McGregor, I was fishing with my buddy out of a portable. It was just about dusk and we were getting our lanterns started. I got mine going and turned to help him when my foot kicked my lantern down the hole. I tied on a Swedish Pimple and after a couple of jigs, I hooked the handle and brought it back to the surface. I put a couple new mantles on and it fired right up. I'm still using that lantern.

Is the Black Lab story actually true? I have heard that one for years but who really knows, guess it could really happen.

Ouch!!! 2 trucks and an ATV? What is the final cost of pulling a vehicle out of the drink? I've dropped rods, tackle, chisel and unfortuneatly the truck keys out on Red.

Last winter on Red Lake I managed to some how pass out in my chair and woke up to a splash, so I jump down to the hole figuring that a slab had taken my rod. Nope, rod still there and with my face about 4 inches from the floor trying to figure out what the heck it was...I realized I didn't have my glasses anymore...sure made for a long 4 hour drive home. That trip was expensive...

    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
    • Great showing by the team last night! It was exciting to see the effort level way up and the new guys seem to plug into their roles well. Much more excited for the rest of the season!
    • I run 6lb on two rods and 4lb on two. I like the (possibly imagined) extra feel on the 4lb for light bites. I run swivels on my rods too, unless there's a very finicky bite
