I removed the ice-fishing reports section for the season. I don’t want to encourage any additional fishing that could lead to someone's death. I’ve left the ice-fishing discussion section open. Until next winter, it's open water time. \:D

Bob, definitely let us know about your last ice-fish of the season. Would be curious to see how long your season goes up there.

Walt,

Glad you got in another ice trip.

Yes, the close on Bantam two years ago was definitely ugly. You could just see the ice melting, yet many kept fishing. I'm done this year.

Glad you've been on the site since 1/02. Have a good season.

Mitch,
I figure I have 3-4 weekends left and then I'm done. There will probably be "safe" ice beyond that, but I don't press my luck with spring ice.

I think this is the most important thread to bump..so here goes.

Let's not forget to use our heads when the season comes around.

#2 item to have (#1 is your brain) are those $6 ice picks. They are the cheapest life insurance you can buy.


A safety rope is also nice to have. This is my setup. I have a large loop tied at the end with a small boat fender tied to it so it floats and is easier to throw. The loop is large enough to easily get around your body. I keep it clipped to the back of my sled so anybody can grab it without searching.



Creepers are another thing. Most people don't think of them as a safety item, but fall on the ice and hit the back of your head, smash your elbow on the ice, etc, and you will change your mind.

I just wanted to remind people to use thier heads before going out this year.


I usually have at least one dream a season that ends like this. I think it's my minds way of keeping me honest and safe.

Bob,

Good call bumping this one.

Funny, I was just thinking about moving an "Offshore" safety tips thread to the Hall of Fame section last night. I couldn't find just one thread on it, so I just started one this morning.

Ice Fishing and Offshore are probably our riskiest endeavors, with probably wading next. It would be nice to have some stand-alone safety threads to help people out -- it just might save a life.
