Just had these emailed to me. This happened a couple of weeks ago near the Sportsmans Access:

Truck for sale, this smart guy may be buying a lighter one :-)

That tow thing is pretty cool but how do they move it around?

This is what happens when you drive a diesel on 12" of ice. Glad they got it out of there, but bummer. That looks like an expensive repair bill that insurance isn't going to cover.

The sled would use a hollow wall anchor type steel tube dropped thru a hole in the ice, then winch itself along to get to the truck, and also used it to anchor the sled when pulling the truck out.

Wow, that would be harsh. All the ice on the floor won't be good, just wonder how much was around the engine then? I wouldn't take a truck that size out until you see a good 16 or more inches and even then I would use my wheeler.

Thanks for posting the pics Dtro, that tow sled is interesting looking. I'd like to se it work sometime, just not on my truck!!

I was just thinking, maybe if he had borrowed the counties front end loader to plow a road, he would have had better luck. crazygrin

actually most insurance companies in MN will cover this in a "one time shame on you for being a dumb a$$" claim. I didnt believe it till I asked my insurance company. after that its all you. ehh its a diesel ford prolly didnt run in the first place just kidding.

Yeah not a real genius idea to drive a truck that big out, especially on such a busy access area. If his truck does run again, i bet he wont be takin it on the ice anytime soon!

What a Moron. Lets drive a 1 ton truck on 12 inches of ice what a bright idea. You think that he would have waited until we had a bit more ice, even then it would be iffy though. You think that people would learn not to take the bigger trucks out on prior especially when theres always 1 or more trucks that go through on prior every year. Thats a real bummer, was a nice truck.

No need to send the guy through the ringer.

I heard third hand that he had parked in the same spot the previous two days.

I have an $11,000 insurance policy that guarantees my three-quarter ton Duramax Diesel truck WILL NOT break through the ice.

You know to diss on a guy who in all probability feels awful over this whole episode is a bit ludicrous and is uncalled for. Who here among us has never driven on ice. As we all know no ice is absolutely safe at any given time we may come up against ice that varies substantially in any given space. All I can say is there but for the grace of God go I.

I feel bad for the guy, hopefully he learned his lesson though. Let's be safe out there, just glad nobody got hurt.

      Well it's all how you look at it grasshopper! 😉

      Well “sadly”. Yes I just said that. Winter is coming to an end and gross summer is near. The hot temps, Humidity, mosquitoes, crazy busy boat landings, drunk boaters. The worst time of the year is near. Life is so blah now. No snowmobiling, no ice fishing, ( I wouldn’t be done for awhile yet but mom won’t let me go anymore😳), I mean really!? I could still drive my truck out What’s more dangerous late ice or being out on first ice on 2”-4”? It’s just water, mud and by far my least favorite time of year. This winter just went by way way to fast! But it is what it is. Can’t believe it, but so long winter 18-19😭🙋‍♂️. In summary probably one of the top ice seasons for me! It’ll make me feel better if I can share some pics with y’all. Enjoy! This is only a VERY few select pics from the winter. Biggest walleye- 21” (caught 3 total all caught while fishing for crappies or gills). Biggest gill- 9-3/4”. Biggest crappie- 13”. Total ice outings 29. (I wanted one more to reach 30). 26 angling outings, 3 dark house spearing outings.

      I am new to catfishing, and live near the stretch of the Mississippi river above the Ford lock and dam to the Marshall Ave. bridge. I have walked along the shore, and found some spots I think would hold some catfish. My only concern is how shallow the river is here. I will be trying these spots within the next two weeks. I am curious if anyone has had success in this section, or will I be wasting my time?

      Didn't go out of resort was on my own off the edge of gull rock reef

      I just wrote to those five people. I am amazed at how I live in the South Haven area and yet every time I learn about these meetings after they happen. And they don’t understand why we feel they want us to stay off “their lake”.  Need to be more open and up front publicly about these meetings. As I have stated before in another forum, I have not fished Sylvia since this was implemented. Also I have not bought bait or boat gas in South Haven the last 2 years. I will spend my money where it is welcomed. I have been cleaning my boat at landings for years, plus power washing it when I get home. I am sure many good anglers/boaters do as well and for them to make us go through this inspection, which is out of the way and not even open 24 hours is rediculous. I am all for stopping the spread of AIS, but there needs to be better ways of doing a it than keeping the lake from all users.  We need everyone to get involved in this even if you don’t live near these lakes.  AIS is affecting us all but we need everyone to speak up about how it will be dealt with, or more lakes will be “closed” to the public with this inspection program.

      Ten Point what resort were you out of?  Thinking of going up this weekend.
    • gimruis
      I haven't seen many yet. I did see a good number of pheasants on a drive to and from Pierz the other day though.

      My point was that I don't want ANY ethanol in an engine/motor that gets used for a while and then sits there - that's why I run ethanol free premium in them.  The ethanol sits there and gums up vital engine parts.  All of my irregular use engines are modern 4-strokes that run very smoothly and use a minimal amount of fuel and I'm going to do everything I can to keep them like that.  I use normal 87 or 89 octane unleaded in my truck because I use that almost every day all year round.

      Got 5 nice 12"ers to fill my special regulation lake limit.. Morning bite was as good as evening bite has been. Released another 7 smaller 10" class fish. Fished 545-700 am. Crappie minnows were the bait of choice today. 1 rod was all I could handle with these suicidal slabs. Had one snap my 4# test flourocarbon leader on the hookset.
