    Any icefisherman out there?

    Just starting to get out on the ice around me. It is an addiction I cannot overcome.

    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    I don't fish, but that looks like a lot of fun. I saw a video recently where a guy caught one that barely fit through the hole.

    Stupid question: do you ever get worried that the ice beneath you will break?

    I have went through several times. Nobody said it was the safest sport in the world! LOL But the technology out there is amazing anymore. That pic I put up is indeed me. That suit I am wearing floats and is rated for over 300 lbs.

    So, do you just sort of swim back up through the hole you went down. (I've never been under the ice before like that.) Can do easily find it?

    It honestly sounds terrifying lol.

    I can only speak for myself. I have always had time to get my arms out and catch the solid ice. Then I sort of roll myself out of the hole. It is not the greatest experience in the world for sure and can be costly. Through the years I have trashed 3 cell phones and 2 digital cameras by going through.

    My brother lived in Wisconsin fora few years and said every Spring there seemed to be a ritual of pulling trucks out of lakes.
