Typical "not an ice fisher" speak! LOLWhat is the line between "ooh look what he is doing" and "ooh, look at the total moron" cross? I am not an ice fisher guy, but that was the stupidest thing I have ever seen. And to go back out to get your stuff makes it all better is worse. I wish this was in very deep water and it was all lost. Good thing the guy didn't die, but come on. November 4th, plus 15 I think he said, and sketchy ice BEFORE he ever went on. What would have happened if he fell through and got back to the shore to find 200 yards of no ice left. Pure stupid right there, no good value to watching it at all.
Wat does not being an ice fisher have to do with knowing what you are doing is stupid. I don't fly planes, but I know that flying 5 feet off the ground is stupid. I don't cross deserts, but I know I probably need water. I don't ice fish, but knowing the ice is sketchy, going to get worse and still going out on it is stupid.
And how exactly did the video demonstrate that........his chopping as he was walking.......axe goes thru, not good, axe doesn't go thru, s/b good........like really, a fricken' 4 year old knows that........the video showed NOTHING else!I disagree vehemently.....I think this is a learning lesson that might save someone's life one day.
I don't have the patience to watch most videos however I saw this one just to get the jist of what the thread was about.I don’t know him and have never watched his videos at all. He’s an idiot for going out on that ice. If he was out to prove how dangerous ice can be, then he would have had rescue personnel with him out there. By not having rescue there, he made an idiotic move.

if the sony a7s had the lens I think it had on....that camera setup would be 4-5K alone lol.I was also disappointed that in addition to the life and death risk, all that gear was put at risk. That would have been $6-7k in gear at the bottom of the lake of gear most of us could only dream of owning. He is very lucky to have a boat with all the means necessary to recover it. Most normal people would have only side imaging, which is pretty much stabbing in the dark. I would have been devastated to lose a flasher.
I was and still am a big fan of his work but I hope everyone can learn that even an expert is not immune to bad judgement.
