Best piece of Saftey Equipment for the Ice is a set of hand spikes. I know a EMT they have to go threw training for ice recuces. On the things they do is a self recuces with and with out spikes with spikes pretty easy to do a self recuce without very hard to do. So get a set and carry them there are cheap and they could save your life. THomT
I look at that video and think to myself when I first got into this thing we call icefishing...I never really had a back up plan for going in. I might have carried rope but that was about it. Eye opening to say the least. Makes me ponder the big ole heavy snow suite I have traditonally always used. Pretty useful information. Who would think to head back where ya went in? Common sense when your looking at a video, but maybe not when your struggling to get your breathe and you can't feel the lower unit area. Pretty impressive video. Hey Blaine maybe you can demonstrate this video, at your next seminar. :p Since becoming a member of this site the best tip I ever cashed in on was by a pair of ice picks!

Re: The next few minutes could save your life!
Burr nipple, I agree that guy is crazy, but I think that he has probably saved a lot of live by showing people how to act in that situation.I know that will help me if I ever take the plunge. I think every ice fisherman should watch these clips. Thanks Blaine.
