My favorite part is the guy who says "That was damn good hole, too", as he drifts off to what could well have been a watery grave. :D

Man, those guys were lucky! :eek:

Those guys floated for something like three hours and traveled close to 2 miles in a stiff wind before they were rescued, all over 100+ feet of water. Lucky doesn't begin to describe the fact that they are all still alive.

Flaming gorge seems like it does not get very consistent ice. A few years Ago there was ice on it till till the last week of march. We hit the lake literally 3 days after ice off on april 1st. And this year the ice has pretty much broken up completely by now. Definatly a crazy lake thats for sure. That stiff constant wyoming wind can be a real pain in the neck.

The ice on there has been very spotty all winter and parts of it have thawed and refrozen as many as 3X this winter. Most of the time there has been enough ice to keep boats off but not quite enough for what I consider safe ice fishing, at least in most of the areas that I would want to fish.

No thank you to all of that.....I'll stick to my soft water program. I've got a lot of years to fish yet and I don't want to be swimming with the fishies in the cold water.

Always remember, "Ice is for bourbon".
