I liked the Budwieser igloo. That would make a good icefishing hut.

It makes you happy that you don't have that job.  The money wouldn't make up for quitting icefishing.

  This guy was drilling holes that were about 12" in diameter and drilling each one into the next one a bit. He could drop a lure down the holes and walk back and forth for about 20'. I watched another guy with an electric auger mounted to the snow plow on his pickup. He would drill a hole, back up, pull up next to the hole, open the door and jig his lure. He had a depth finder on his dash.  ;D

Just saw the last episode! I think drew is a wuss and I hoped rick's boss would have hit him with the board he was swinging. The show is great and all it does is make me want the ice that much faster!

I watched it also, I agree those two idiots make truckers look bad. Rick should have been let go along time ago. But then they would have had to fill that section of the show in with something else. It would have been nice to have a little update on Alex, he was pretty cool.  ;D

Big fan of the show although i liked last season more then this season.  I will also agree the Drew is just a putz and Rick thinks he is the tough SOB in the world; put the two together and you can tell they are only doing it for the tv exposure.  Hats off to the guys who grind it day in and out and put down some serious loads and time on the ice.

Ive iced fishing in -20 to -25 below with the wind howling and it wasnt that bad when you were in the shelter with a little heat going; that walk in and out to your spot was less then pleasureable though...  I cannot imagine what -50 degrees feels like...

Jimmy, here in Colorado we can only have a 10" hole. Even at that size, when the wind fills them with snow, I have put a leg in one up to my knee. Darn cold. Can you imagine what the ice cracking sound like when those truck run over it. When the ice cracks under my bucket it gives me chills. Wishin for ice. afishingfool

I would assume someone with small children decided on hole size. Anything bigger than 10" would be very dangerous. Even 10" is very dangerous to small children, animals, drunk icefishermen, and icefishermen not paying attention.

I don't like it here, so I will probably be here for a while.........
