You just know those are guy fisherman...women just aren't that desperate for entertainment!

Vickie said...

LOL!! The weather people are always telling us to be careful. You can never be sure that the ice is thick enough. One day it is freezing, the next we are wearing our spring coats!!

Jennifer said...

Ahahahahaaaa! ROTFLMBO! Oh man, that is going down in the books!

Vodka Logic said...

Holy crap. I hope my husband doesn't take up ice fishing. Probably safe there is football to keep him busy in the winter.

Thanks for the great pics.

And that is why Michigan owns my heart.

Mango Girl said...

That was hilarious!!

BRRRRRRR~! We watch Dirty Jobs here a lot when we can get reception for our TV and they did a whole episode on this car rescue business. They have a apparatus that they invited and everything for hauling out the cars! COLD job because they need those divers to go down and hook up. And I thought living in Snow land was tough!

Jaime said...

too funny. i think i'll pass on the fishing!

Rebecca Jo said...

That's just craziness!!! How did they know where to cut the ice to pull the car out???

i'm in awe!

otin said...

I actually saw something like that when I was a kid. On cold winters, Barneget Bay, in Jersey woud freeze over, and some people would try to drive across it. Sometimes the ice was thick, sometimes it wasn't.......
HAHA!

Karen MEG said...

Wow, those pictures were amazing... and hilarious! But I'm so not looking forward to ice and winter .... brrrr!

buffalodick said...

I'm from Michigan- lived here all my life... I've ice fished twice, and truth be told- I'm just not that hard up for a damn fish dinner!

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Yikes! You have to wonder though...if it's dangerous to walk on ice why would you drive your car on it? Thick ice or not!

Good thing I don't like fish.

BTW - I saw a commercial for that orange chicken you reviewed. The one with the panda Wanchai (sp)? Funny :)

Chief said...

Seriously!? Why not just head to Costco and get your seafood?

Martha in PA said...

I too think I will stay off the ice. Always looked like risky business to me!

Happy Saturday - I think the rain has stopped.

Christine said...

OMG, I remember when this happened! I'm wondering if they got fined...wasn't that in the news?...that all those fishermen were going to have to pay some sort of "rescue fine"? Geeeeesh! I'd have been P.O.'d. Losing the sled and literally paying for my stupidity....talk about adding insult to injury!

carma said...

that is a hoot!!

The Head Eagle said...

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. I have never seen anything like this!

I'm with you..I will stick to regular fishing!

roadrunner201 said...

Holy smokes! That is awful! I am so glad that I live in the mostly warm south!

Thanks for stopping by for SITS fest:-)

Mommy Jamie said...

Oh my goodness! That just blows the mind of this southern gal. I've never seen ice like that. Nope, I'm not so into the idea of ice fishing myself. Seems like the best thing to do on a day like that is curl up with a hot coffee and good book INSIDE somewhere warm.

Amy said...

Oh my this is so true. I have heard and seen this on the new where I live also. It is fun to ice fish. I did it last year.

Just Breathe said...

Are you kidding me, I can't believe those pictures. Why would they park there? OMG

!!The Obnoxious SAHM!! said...

oh my goodness that is wild. no wonder why I don't fish.

Matty said...

Holy ice rink Batman.

NateAndJakesMom said...

My hubby is an avid fisherman and keeps talking about going ice fishing - I had to show him and my older son this to prove to them that I was right and that it isn't a good idea.

So thank you!! :)

Mom said...

I almost woke the girls up from their much needed nap because of you.

I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

Oh my gosh - I can't believe all those trucks fell through the ice... That was not a good day for a lot of men.

Ice Queen said...

What the hell?? That is the craziest thing I've ever seen. This is why I avoid winter driving at all costs.

Captain Dumbass said...

I don't know. Isn't it just easier to go to the store?

Kristen Andrews said...

yes here in Michigan we have a lot of fools that go out on the ice when they shouldn't

Justine said...

Get the hell out! Are these for real?

Justine :o )

Unknown Mami said...

I thought parking was tough in San Francisco.

Hit 40 said...

How crazy!! I remember a chunk of ice floated away with about a dozen fisherman and snow mobiles in Ohio this spring on lake Erie.

Megan said...

Double...TRIPLE "OOPS"!!!

Yeah, I think I'll be sticking to solid ground thankyouverymuch!!

Mrs4444 said...
