What was supposed to be a relaxing day ice fishing on the lake quickly turned into a life-or-death situation for Nick Calcara from 618 Fishing. He underestimated how frozen the lake actually was, and only realized as the ice was cracking underneath him. Luckily, he had his ice picks around his neck and was able to pull himself out of the freezing water. He posted the video to point out his own errors and to encourage his fellow ice-fishers to take proper safety precautions when out on the lake.
