Is that legal? Lol


More legal than dynamite.


If the ice is too thick, just pour a few gallons of the blue antifreeze on top of the ice. Looks like open water and more environmentally friendly than gasoline or dynamite. (DDs, please realize this is sarcasm)

Implied sarcasm isn't their strongest trait :fingerhead:

The problem with that is you send your dog on a retrieve and it comes back blue. It's hard to hide a blue dog in the woods.

Take a half dozen old decoys and cut the keel off flush with the bottom. Get a roll of catfish trot line courd .... a bag of 25 trot line clips ... attach the clips to a piece of flex line about 18" long on one end and tie the other end to a clip.

Have a buddy take the " dead man end " around the corner of a piece of water and down a ways on the other side. Stop him when you got the angle " right with the wind " ... clip on a decoy and holler " PULL " watch the deke skitter along on the ice like that ice skater that got clocked by her best friend year ago ... oh well ... I digress. Put a few feet between the next decoy and clip on another one " PULL " ... repeat process until all your dekes are on the line and they are sitting well out from the shoreline lookin like a line of ducks sitting in the water!

DUCKS WILL STILL TRY AND LAND ON DECOYS THAT ARE SITTING ON TOP OF ICE! It's like BOWLING FOR DOLLARS as when they hit the ice they got to looking like a bowling ball going down a lane or at least one that I toss out there. Try to HIT THAT!

Don't believe me ... TRY IT!

I'll do about anything that is legal to GET'R DONE ... but pouring gasoline on ice or anti freeze for that matter is something I would not do and don't get me wrong here I am NOT JUDGING ANYONE'S APPROACH to an age old problem. I just wouldn't do it TO MY 'SHED ... yours or someone elses either for that matter. I'm think'n of a possible harming of the FISH which I like to catch and eat all spring , summer and fall!

Buy a ten dollar BURN BARREL and fill the bottom with ballast rocks ... then load it up with say 30 lbs. of charcoal and some fire wood ... then pour 3 or 4 gallons of Diseal on top of it ... GET BACK and DROP THE MATCH! The wood will burn down to coals to go with the slow burning charcoal ... let it burn overnight and in the morning you will have a hole the size of which will depend on the wind direction ... if there is any. The more wind BLOWING OUT the bigger the hole. No wind it will be about 20' x 20'! That and there will be a ring of slush and softer ice which will break away and melt with the slightest of pressure on it.

Try it ... IT'S ALL WORK!

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that they were joking. I could be wrong though.

Especially when my post stated "....please realize this is sarcasm".

AND diesel? Oh yeah that's the environmentally friendly choice. Like the burn barrel idea......without the diesel part.

UDM has some tricks up his sleeve, every season I learn a few new ones while reading his posts. The burn barrel is a damn good idea.

I whipped up something last Saturday expecting to use it on my frozen pond Sunday morning. I've been tossing this idea around for a couple of weeks so I thought I would give it a shot. I took a tiller steer trolling motor and fastened it to the back of a folding metal chair, set it in the water and set the batter in the seat. Hooked it up and turned er on and it worked great. It created a pretty good flow of water and it seemed to melt away the ice that was present after a little bit of time. I haven't tried it on anything thicker than 1/4" but I'm sure if I got out early enough and turned it on it would do the trick. Pretty sure that the pond is frozen right now as every pond I see is, so come friday night if it's still locked up I'm going to give it a try on some thicker stuff. I also have the luxury of driving right to the spot I'm hunting as this would be a pain in the arse to haul into a public spot.
STRAP IT DOWN!!
