I don't know how many of our members see the Sandusky Register, but below is a link to an article about what happened to 3 Ice Fisherman yesterday. http://www.sanduskyregister.com/articles/2009/01/15/front/1085508.txt What gives someone the right to call 911 because "they" think that the ice is unsafe for the men to be out on. From the picture, these guys have all the correct gear, and are most likely experienced fisherman, but yet they were forced to get off the ice. I just had a discussion with a co-worker (former navy/submarine seaman) and he believes the LEO/EMS were in the right. If the men would have been in trouble, then that in turn puts the rescuer's in risk. He also said look at statistics of last year about the number of rescues on mother Erie. I totally agree with this, but the fact that it is not illegal to icefish, and it is a sport of "at your own risk" just burns my arse over this! The 911 caller should be charged in this situation for wasting time and $, all of which is much more important than forcing some guys off the ice for doing what they love! He didn't have much to say when I brought up the statistics of car accidents when there is 2" of snow on the ground. You can't tell me that someone in a 3,000lb car in adverse weather is creating a safer situation for LEO/EMS than this!!!
