somebody dump a sled in by the river?

7 posts in this topic

saw a couple sheriff's cars and a DNR truck out by the downtown acces today around 3:30, and there was a pretty fresh looking hole by the river inlet with sled tracks leading up to it. Did someone drop one in? some of those people are getting pretty close to that river with trucks and wheel houses.

I was in town Tuesday picking up groceries and thought exactly the same thing - some people are really pushing it.

I saw the same thing yesterday. I'm not sure what happend either. Regardless, I don't care if there's two feet of ice by the channel, you won't catch me too close with that current nearby. There's quite a village out there between Valvoline and Ace.

The one in the paper occured last Friday, and they pulled the snowmobile out of the water on Monday. I never saw anything in the paper about whether anything happened the previous week.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
