BE CAREFUL Ice Fisherman!!!!

Spent the morning with a pretty good friend and long time customer yesterday. Drank coffee, talked about ice fishing, had some laughs....

Just found our he and his 2 year old grandson broke through the ice later in the day. Both were recovered by divers and air lifted to Minneapolis. He did not make it, and we just heard the child has been put on life support. A sad day indeed.....

Happened in an area he was very familiar with, and ice conditions have been better this year than the last few years. A sure reminder that no ice is safe ice....

Thoughts and prayers to his family.

Very sad. They had a warning on the news last night. It's hard to believe the conditions are that bad. There hasn't been much snow witch usually means good ice. This doesn't sound like it's the case this year.

That is so true. Ice on lake is very mysterious. The wierd thing is I don't think we had a temperature above freezing the entire month of Feb in MN.

Dangerous as heck out on that ice this time of year. The ice fisherman around here push the envelope as far as they can... scary.

Very sad, thoughts and prayers your way.

As an FYI, I've seen trucks go through in northern MN with 3' of ice... you just need to drive between two cracks hidden under snowpack for it to happen. Always an inherent danger when driving a vehicle on the ice.

Underwater currents equals the death of ice fisherman... you may check the ice and get 14", but further away you could have 2" of ice.... Must to know the lake and the water flows....
