If there’s one thing I know about fisherman and house painters, it’s that they’re all degenerate drunks

From a local article last week. :mamoru:


Let’s start with Lake Superior. Are people taking to the ice off of Beacon Point in Duluth? The answer is yes. Are these people risking lives to catch fish? Yes, yes they are. Please don't go and ice fish Lake Superior anywhere near Duluth or Superior. This ice is not safe. (In fact by Thursday evening much of the ice had blown out in stiff northwest winds, leaving open water where ice anglers had been fishing the day before.)

If we get the expected subzero temperatures in the coming days, and little wind, we might find safe ice soon. But for now the Lake Superior ice off Duluth should be avoided. For those of you that are chancing this ice, please don't promote this!

I remember I used to go ice fishing with my grandpa, and after he ran out of beers he'd always say "Watch this, grandson," strip down to his underwear, and slide down through the hole in the ice. A few minutes would pass, and he'd always come back holding a beers that he'd snagged by sneaking up through someone else's ice fishing hole. He did this for as far back as I can remember, and we always thought it was hilarious to visualize him popping out of someone else's hole and stealing their beer. Anyways, when I turned 21, I was out there with him and

Been ice fishing since I was a kid. Would never go out on a partially frozen lake tbh.

Same. I know lake superior is a different deal, but if i can see open water i'm not fucking around on the ice. Sucks that people knew it wasn't safe and did it anyway. Now they're putting rescue crew lives at risk to come get their dumbasses.
