I did an ammo inventory recently

This is where to ask questions and offer experiences about the art and science of ammunition building. Also observations about any acquired ammo.

NuJudge, I guess that means it is time for ice fishing in your neck of the woods. A friend of mine in lower Michigan went the other day and sent me a photo of his new portable fishing shelter. He caught one big bass after an hour and had to put it back because it was out of season.

I never could understand ice fishing. Seems a little crazy to me.

Its even crazier when the ice gets rotten

After a long cold spell, inevitably the weather will warm, and in Southeast Michigan there are always reports of fishermen out on the ice when their part of that ice detached and moved under the prevailing winds out of the west, on a slow trip to Canada. The last numbers I heard were it cost $1800 an hour for a Coast Guard helicopter to go get them. I've heard people rescued say that they pay taxes, so they have a right to have the Coast Guard come rescue them.

If the Coast Guard goes after them. Down on the Gulf Coast you are pretty much going to get some help elsewhere than the Coast Guard even if you call them for help, unless you are in danger of drowning or have a serious injury. I've seen the Towboat US boat pull people in from out in the Gulf before. One boat I saw pulled in probably wasn't worth the cost of the tow. They charge by the mile going and coming. The average boat tow is advertised at just under $1000. I got their number...but hope I never have to call. Sea Tow VHF 26 or VHF 16.
