My II Cents

Maybe Santa will bring them some common sense.

They were IDIOT'S. Is it really worth it? Happens every year.

Sounds like there was just one true idiot, the other guy was trying to help the idiot, and went in too.

God, I love this time of year...high levels of entertainment. You know, cuz ice fishing is so fucking awesome, I gotta risk my life to do it!! :thumb:

It can be awesome or deadly just like most activities.
Common sense and experience will keep you safe.
A simple spud bar tells you if it is safe ice and common sense to not stay out too long on deteriorating ice, or just drag a floatable device as a sled.

That is really a great idea...

Put you Shanty on a Smitty sled, throw your modified outboard out a window transom and off you go! Love it

Not un-expected as they fell thru near the inlet, someone falls thru there every year. That area is never really safe even in the middle of winter but unfortunatly not everyone is aware of that. Maybe they should post some signs in that area or put out some traffic cones to mark the danger zone. I guess the important thing is they are going to be OK and maybe it will keep the rest of us on our toes when it comes to safety on the ice, I know it got my attention.

Location, location, location...

January 20th last year, 7-8 inches of ice by the dam, inlet was thin slushy death. Its apparent and abundantly clear just visually that it is never safe at the inlet. Road cones/signs=good idea.

Very cool, the only problem is who's gonna rescue you when you break down out there on sketchy ice?

Kinda like having a turbo Snowmachine gotta be careful how you ride cause no one can get to you to help when you screw up.

How cool would it be to be able to extend your season to year round. Build one set up for fishing that you could use year round!!

Yeah...I've seen vids of people fly fishing off of them...running them up and down rivers over rapids..hitting the ocean right through the waves at the beach..pretty cool.

A buddy with a place in Cabo has been trying to figure out a boat for the ocean there..No ramp and the sands too deep at his place to back a trailer in..he's thought about kayaks...but he could take a Hovercraft right from his garage straight out into the ocean and back..no trailer..no dragging a kayak..

At the end of this vid is some cool beach footage.
