Default Gone fishing. Almost caught one....

One lonely ice fisherman sat on Long Lake in New Brighton Wednesday afternoon, hoping to snag a walleye. If the man had set his lines 40 yards to the North, he could have snagged a 2,000 pound Bonneville...as in Pontiac Bonneville.
And the best part:

"All of a sudden I see this [b]white car[b] sticking with its nose down, just sticking out of the ice," Heinks said.

Go figure...

I remember in MI people used to fall through all the time with their vehicles lol. From what I understand, VERY expensive. I'm not too sure how they get them out, I was too young. I think some use a barge and a crane.
