That is a hellofa picture from Upper Red on the main page.

Still, there are way too many folks on either side of the bridge to make me feel comfortable about what is going on up there.

Someone please tell me that is the rescue operation and not just the means they are using to get out there on the cracked ice and fish longer.  :confused:

I hope so, but I still see too many folks on either side of the bridge - and far away from it.

Don't know when the picture was taken, and I don't know what they're waiting for, but if it was me, I'd be across that bridge and on my way to shore right after they secured it.

200 Minnesota Ice Fishermen Rescued from Half-Frozen Lake

Here is something you didn't know about the rescue...

It will be an especially memorable day for Andy LaBarge and Lydia Thole, a couple who got engaged while out on the ice.

“Andy had tied my ring on a lure and put it on my bobber line and I came back in and he’s like ‘Oh you got a fish,'” Thole recounted. “So I reel it up and he’s on a knee, and I said ‘Oh my god!'”

Wonder what Andy would have done if a big ‘pout had grabbed it and headed off.

Your not a kidding.  OR if a nord grabbed it and bit his line off.  Good for them though.  How fun is that?

"YEAH!  And you almost KILLED me you dumb lummox," said Lydia to Andy.  :angry:

I used to fish that part of the lake a lot. Bummer about the third guy.  Hope he is ok.
