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!!

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
