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.

      Many people come on this forum asking for help, but I'm begging much more sincerely.   60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly pay one of you a NICE tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   I'm still begging.... could you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.

      Up on mille lacs isle bay. 13.5 inches of ice and half ton trucks out here. Fishing is slow. 1 Walleye last night at 845. Moving the house deeper today.

      Got to work the weekend ... good luck guys!!  Will be checking in to see what these fish look like 😉

      I am going to check some local lakes today

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      Fish went deeper durring the day today. Not easy cracking the code this year
    • brrrr
      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.  
    • knoppers
      I just got a report from nextdoor that we have 8-10 inches.
