Ice Drivers

11 posts in this topic

After watching what those drivers do on the ice roads I think another interesting story line would be what the service providers do on Upper Red. You guys go through the ice, hear and see some strange and intersting things, a lot of them humorous, scary, or otherwise. Throw in some folklore for good measure and you got a show!!!!! I'd watch it anyways.

Dirty Jobs? How about crawling around in rice paddy mud up to your waist fixing equipment, handling seed rice that smells just like a nasty pig barn,scrubbing fish blood and poo out of the boat carpet, hauling poo bags all winter, mixing massive amonts of bear bait that just plain sticks to everything, cleaning scum/seaweed and dead shiners out of the minnow traps/tanks. I know dirt well, and poeple always ask me what it is like living the dream. confused.giflaugh.gif

Guides/plow trucks never "go through the ice" we are just "looking for crappies".

Not as bad as the diesel mechanic that showed up wearing his leather work boots. I didn't notice he had them on until the entire boat had a grease stain at foot level.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
