"Not the quickest way to build an ice fishing hole"


The answer to the question everyone has been waiting for: will 20 kilograms of red hot steel go through about a foot of frozen lake ice?

Why not put a metal cable or chain on it? I would not want to lose that weight.

If you're ice fishing and a polar bear appears in front of you... what do you do?

You sneak around behind him and kick him in the ice hole.

Evi is so correct. What's with those two that they didn't anticipate losing the weight if it broke through? I was anxious the whole time.

Ice fishing is a cult. The flick, Grump Old Men, showed the masses just that. It was set in a neighboring town to where my daughter went to college.

I wonder if Allen ice fishes?

1, 2, 3... 3 licks to get to the bottom of a tootsie roll pop. We may never know if 20kg of red hot steel will go through a foot of ice without someone picking up the no longer red hot steel and dropping it on the ice.

And do what with it?

i'm not surprised it didn't go through. Heat radiating out 360 degrees but how much was going directly down into the ice?

Losing the weight was part of the charm of the video, I think. Notice how they made it the highlight of the video.
