Artical from the AP!

DULUTH - A Duluth woman was rescued from the frigid waters of Lake Superior on Sunday after she fell from the deck of a 30-foot sailboat while sailing alone, the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said.

Julie Ann Rosen, 52, was recovered from the water after the sailboat was spotted grounded just south of the Aerial Lift Bridge shortly before 5 p.m., Sgt. Wade Rasch said. She was in the water for about an hour.

The sheriff's Rescue Squad located Rosen, who was not wearing a life jacket, swimming about 1,000 yards from the boat. She was taken by ambulance to St. Mary's Medical Center for treatment of hypothermia.

Gotta hand it to the Sheriff's Dept and their quick response - sure hope she learned her lesson about life jackets, especially when you're out on the water by your self.

I'm always amazed at the kind of job the water patrols, USCG/Sheriff's Dept do for us. They are top-notch!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
