Wear your life jacket, connect the kill switch, watch out for stumps. Boating safety speeches are expected, but caution and contingency plans are no less relevant when the water turn solid.
To this point Colorado Parks and Wildlife offers safety tips relevant to ponds, lakes and streams anywhere. First, consider that ice thickness will vary from spot to spot, so assume unsafe ice may exist in your area. Four inches is the threshold for fishing safety; five for off highway vehicles (OHV's).

Perhaps not in monetary terms, but the gilded memory of catching a state-record fish is even better than gold.This was the tale for Mark Reed whose 10-pound, 10.56-ounce rainbow trout broke an Oklahoma state record set nearly a half century ago.

This video isn't exactly new, but it seems to make the rounds every time the water gets hard.

What does the fox say? Apparently that he’s hungry for catfish.
So hungry that he’ll pull one from the waters himself if need be.
That’s pretty much what a Lithuanian fisherman caught on film when he came across this fox trying to haul in this giant catfish. [ Read Full Post ]
