Wow still can not believe it.......

So we are sitting on the lake in the ice house and its 12/13/07 and the other "guide from the metro" pulls out his phone to check the time. Its falls out of his hand into the hole and you can watch it on the fish finder go all the way to the bottom. So we put a small flashlight on a line down the hole and there is the phone sitting there on the bottom. So he gets down with a jigging spoon on his line and trys to hook it. He goes at it for about 15 minutes and he hooks it and pulls it up and out of the hole. Just so you know we are sitting in about 15 feet of water. When he pulls the phone out of the hole it is still working and searching for service. . .. I don't know how but it is still working. AMAZING>>>>>> tell me about your crazy ice stories.

i was with a couple of friends (some inexperenced) my buddy set his rod up and droped his line, then helped another buddy rig up. when he turned to check on his rod, he saw his rod being pulled down the hole. To make a long story short, we found the rod (with the fish on it) about 3 hours later on the aqua view. 8 holes later we finally snaged the rod and caught the fish

Well, you might not believe me but here we go... on the 2005 fishing opener my cell phone slipped out of my jacket pocket into the lake. I watched it hit the bottom in 12 feet of clear water. I thought it was done for sure so we kept fishing. After about 2 hours I decided to go back to the spot and get the phone. Maybe it's under warranty? I didn't know. Anyhow, I found the spot again and could see the phone sitting on the bottom of the lake. I stripped down to my boxers jumped in and got the phone. I dried it out for a few days and it would almost turn on. So I took it in to Verizon and they replaced the battery, under warranty, and that was all it took! The phone worked perfectly for the next year and half until I upgraded it!! I should have called LG and told them about it. I can't imagine all their phones would have the same result after being under water for 2 hours, but it makes for a good story.

I have an I580 that was in water at NW metro area lake launch for about 10 minutes this spring. Dove down in power loading 6-8" deep hole and finally found it. Took it home and drained water out of some area's and dismantled as far down as I could and let it sit under a bulb style work lamp for 24 hours. Reassembled and I works to this day. I always thought speaker phone suffered a little bit, but most times it works great.

I just bought the thing a month or two before and did not buy insurance. I did not want to pay for a new phone and just started a new contract.

I would say, the first thing to do, is shut if off. Then remove battery and panels and try to drain as much water out at first. Head home and take apart and dry with blow dryer or heat lamp.

I was the one that dropped my phone in last night fishing with the metroiceguide and the funny thing is that its the second time that its has happened to me, and the second time I got it back. I guess I have bad luck with that (or maybe good luck?). My first one that got dropped in worked for like 6 months after it got dumped in before I got another. This one is one of verizon's g'zone type V phones so its waterproof to 3 feet but it was about 15 feet down. I got to give credit to this phone cause its been in the washing machine for a cycle too. What an interesting end to a night fishing though.

i know a guy that keeps his pepermint schnaaps floating in an extra hole to keep it just the right temperature. a few years back, he gets settled into his spot, takes the bottle out and sets in the hole only to see it sink right to the bottom. i guess maybe putting half empty bottles in the hole instead of full ones would be a good idea.

Option "B"

Shake out the water ASAP.

Remove battery and memory card if installed, shake it some more.

Heat oven to 170 degrees

While oven is heating up, shake more water out of cell phone if you didn't do it already, do it some more anyway.

DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR! IT WILL DESTROY THE LCD.

Place phone on plate in heated oven, cook for an hour or so until done, remove plate and phone, let cool.

Replace battery's and memory card.

Works on cameras to, but you may have a fogged display for a while.

Note: It only works a couple times and then the afore mentioned device will start to deteriorate.

Above directions tested numerous times by me, MSRD, on cel phones and a Canon camera and it has worked for me more times than I'll admit. Good luck, my thought has been "I got nothing to lose, it's already trashed"

Nor will admit or be responsible if it still don't work for ya.

i have had a cell phone go through the wash on 2 different occasions and still work. eventually i upgraded to a nicer phone and of course when i dropped that one in a lake for about 5 seconds in 2 feet of water it stopped working. Now i am back to using the phone that went through the wash 2 times and it still is working perfectly fine and its over 4 years old.

I was in my portable with 2 holes drilled. I dropped my wallet into one of the holes and it sunk. I was sitting there upset when a large carp came to the surface in one of the holes. A second carp with my wallet in its mouth come up out of the second hole. They tossed my wallet back and forth a few times then tossed it to me.

It was the first time I had ever seen carp to carp walleting.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
