Funny enough, I was chatting with @bozz a few weeks back and we went back and forth sharing articles of people ice fishing and getting swept out to sea because the ice they were on broke off from the coast.
Well not long ago, a 10 mile long sheet of ice broke free from the coast, leaving many ice fishermen stranded on a floating sheet of ice, being carried out to the middle of Lake Superior.
Most everyone lost all of their gear. We're talking ice houses, poles, tackle, vexilars, augers, you name it, it got left out there.
A few heroes hopped in some small skiffs and tried to save and help as many people as possible. Human life was obviously #1, and thankfully as far as my knowledge, no one was injured or died. But they were also able to save a few items that would have ended up on the lake floor.
The video I am sharing below is from a local MN YouTuber.
His name is Mav. He grew up not far from me in a suburb of Minneapolis, but recently moved up to Duluth, MN. A beautiful city overlooking Lake Superior.
Most of his videos are of him truck camping or doing catch & cooks. Cool dude and overall his videos are really well done. Be sure to go check out his channel.
I have emailed Mav once or twice, trying to get him to post here on Hive, but so far no dice. Maybe this will help? Who knows.
So here's the video elaborating on the ice break, and a good deed by Mav helping a few people get some of their gear back, check it out and feel free to let Mav know on his YT channel that you saw this on HIVE!
The more great content creators we can get here, the better for everyone. They just don't know what they're missing.
Maybe he'll even end up changing his tag line to "and you already know the drill, just keep on Hive'n", lol. I can only dream, right?
