Just read an article in today's paper about these guys. Pretty crazy. The article reads they usually recover 2 vehicle's a week that broke through the ice.

It said the 2 weeks over the holidays they recovered 13 items, one being a fishhouse on big watab. They show a picture in the paper of a specially designed pontoon, and they have 2 different sizes depending on what they need to recover. They also use ice certified divers. Bet that ain't cheap.

After reading that I'm not so sure I am in any hurry to fish around here any time soon. They said they've been from north of brainerd to the cities.

Maybe they should get onto Highway to Hell the TV show on the weather Channel about tow trucks.
