Angler goes through the ice on Coon Lake channel!

7 posts in this topic

This afternoon an angler went through the ice after an Anoka Co. sherrif in an air boat drives by the angler breaking up the ice! The angler saw the boat coming and ran by him breaking up the ice in chunks. He didn't get off before the boat went by and busted up the 2 inches of ice he was standing on. Saw this on Fox 9 news at five.

2 inches is fine if it is consistant and you take precautions...i.e life jacket and another person with you.....but to have the Sherriff drive by and cause you to go into the water.......I would not be happy and would ? their attention to detail when testing or running the air boat on thin ice with an angler close by or even running on early ice when they know that people are itching to test the ice and they are making it unsafe!!!

Ozzie- they were not testing it... they were on a call to a dog stuck in the water.

classic!!! save a dog endanger a human...sad thing is there are a lot of people that would be more worried about the dogs safety than the fishermans!! I see this stuff is being talked about in the Ice forum......hope the fisherman is doing well!!

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
