    Anyone on the ice now is an idiot that risks the lives of first responders who have to respond to save your dumb ass.

    There was plenty of ice we checked the whole way out there. 10 inches is plenty to walk out.. there was a ton of people. I’m not sure how heavy of a guy you are but I doubt you’d go through ten inches of ice. I have 2 kids who are worth more than any fish or thin ice and my brother is a first responder so I know all about that stuff.

    was in Minocqua area of Wisconsin this past Saturday, 22 inches of snow on 1 to 2 inches of ice on Big ArborVitae. Snowmobile trails closed do to soft ground, no ice on wet area,s of trails and lack of ice on lakes, with all that snow on very little ice it could be quite some time to build ice.

    Yeah
    that’s never good for making good ice be careful! No fish is worth risking it for me. I guess if I have a doubt at all about it I just don’t risk it

    Glad to hear you did so well me and the lady have a 4 bed sleeper we rent for 3 days two nights once every year on lake of the woods through dales resort. Him and his wife are great people and always put on us fish. His sleepers are really nice as well. Did you know those nasty slimy bastards are delicious

    Sorry about that, I work with some real idiots one guy was saying that because his house has dual axels he can get out there sooner that single axel trailers. There has been a few rescues already around me, and the 25 people that had to be plucked off an ice flow up on red lake.

    Those idiots give ice fishing a bad name. Yeah I feel sorry for first responders who know that someone went through and have to go risk they’re own well being to help people that should’ve known better. Happens every year.

    Idiots in SW Minnesota thought they could drive out on the lake. Nice work.

    Just got back from Mille Lacs lake tonight. 0 fish this time.

    Went to Red Lake about 3 weeks ago. Ton of bigger fish coming out of there this year. Won’t be going back this year though.

    Headed to Lake of the Woods this coming Friday-Monday. Always a good time spending 3 days in the Ice Castle.
