Assassin, where do you see the post about someone (AJ) going through the ice?

I did not read that post . If any spot looks different give it a poke with a spud bar. I have a 20ft rope on my sled so my weight and the weight of the sled are spread out when checking the ice in front of me .

Thats a good idea I should really make mine longer. I extended it last year but not by much.

I'd change the post title to "Who wants to die over one 18" rainbow?"

When I was much younger with better circulation I used to ice fish the Mile in the middle if the night alone without a shelter. Just a hand auger and a metal folding chair. I wouldn't go until late Dec or early January-to be safe. For some reason nobody wanted to go with me! One night I excitedly walked out from Sucker Cove about 100-125 yards to the North-Northeast. I drilled my first hole through 15-17 inches of ice. I drilled my second hole 4 feet from the first and the auger popped through after just a handful of turns. It had to be 2-3 inches. Needless to say---I gently stepped to back towards the first hole and was totally unnerved-afraid to walk back to the car for warm ups until daylight when hopefully other fishermen arrived.. Hate when that happens!! Young and dumb!!

Great you had a successful day! Always get excited to see the bibber going down, one of the more fun moments of ice fishing for sure!

Nice trout bud. Glad you had a nice outing, there is good ice out there I just made a mistake not being cautious. Have a good ice season.
