I thought it was a good idea to post this video again :  What To Do If You Fall Through The Ice

Just watched this again Doug, all should take a refresher, especially with this and the past winters.
No, it's your turn!

I can't watch video because I'm on my blackberry. I have fallen through the ice when duck hunting. Waders filled up and it was bad.

I managed to get out. I was alone. I ran as best I could to my truck - weight doubled with. Flooded waders - and stripped down completely before getting into it. I started the engine put on a dry t-shirt and as soon as I had engine heat I drove home naked waste down.

I also keep a change of clothes in my truck. But weighing my options I raced home to a warm bath. Unlike doing a Polar Bear dive I was mentally not prepared and I believe it was to solid days before I got my core temperature up. I can get a chill thinking back on it.

you should always keep a set of sweatpants and hoodie in ur truck/car at all times, year round cause u never know.  ALWAYS go on the ice w a set of picks around ur neck, no matter if there are trucks parked on the ice DONT LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THEM its not worth ur life.  I rarely fish solo and if I do I will never be the only guy on the ice alone, and its a great idea to carry a whistle attached to your ice suit.  fishing is serious to alot of us but its not worth ur life, drowning+freezing is a crappy way to die
