Angler goes through the ice on Coon Lake channel!

Recommended Posts

fishfearme

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!!

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
