It isn't winter until idiots in Minnesota lose a truck through thin ice.

Interesting, combining ice fishing and trolling as the ice moves along.

WTF is the appeal of ice fishing??

It's beer, isn't it?

When I moved to Wisconsin, there had just been a sting that broke up a prostitution ring of women going from ice shanty to ice shanty on the local lakes.

So, whiskey, beer, schnapps, and hookers.

Wow ... I've been in what I believe was a typical ice fishing shack.  Having a hard time imagining that.  Or maybe I just don't want to - a keenly honed mental health defense mechanism.

edmo: I thought that was Spring.


For me it's winter when we get the annual "Shocking story of a snowmobile sinking on Lake Minnetonka while going under a bridge!"  Seriously, I swear, every damn year.  

And I have to agree with Edmo on the truck, that's always the idiot that goes out there in May after a week of 50+ temps.

I've gone out on the ice with a snowmobile, a 3-wheeler, a car, and a truck. (man were my arms sore from the stretching)  But going out on something a big as Red lake this early.  Hard pass.

It's amazing that 100 guys would be stranded on thin ice this early in the ice fishing season. I can't believe
200 fishermen would be that brainless. This being said, I'm glad to see they were able to rescue all 400 of them.

/Doesn't cop math apply to all first responders?

it is a needed break from the wife, the screaming kids, the chores, your boss, the internet, etc.  It can be so peaceful and relaxing with out all the crap of the modern world.

There's a wide range of ice fishing shacks. I've never actually used one (for fish or hookers), but driving past popular lakes I've seen everything from a tent to a shed made of scrap wood to luxury units bigger and more expensive than my house.

I've always wondered if you can get insurance on those things when they sink / blow away / break off and float to another state.

There's something fishy going on and it isn't the lake trout.

Seriously? I am just a couple hours drive from the two Red lakes and either it must have been colder up there and they got more ice formation or these fisherman are nuts.
