Ice Fish Efficiently

Ice Fish Efficiently

In Arctic, the pilot uses wire and a battery from his plane to generate heat and melt through the ice.

To avoid having to sit exposed while waiting for the fish to bite, make a bell by suspending a portion of the fishing line between two stakes, then string two things onto it that’ll clink together when you've got a fish on—a couple of pots, say, or the blades from trowels.

  • Ice is good for numbing pain, but avoid it when it’s so cold that frostbite can set in in record time.
  • As the film Arctic shows, snow can be used to plug wounds preventing hemorrhage as it induces vasoconstriction. It can still cause frostbite but it might be better th...

Your body takes a lot of energy away from maintaining your core temperature in order to melt snow, so avoid it unless you are dehydrating.

Arctic explorers would carry their water bottles under their coats, on the ridge between their shoulders, right at the bases of their heads. That would keep it from melting without getting in the way of other stuff they had to carry.

They would also not drink their bottles all the w...

Radios or transponders, especially those powered by a hand crank, are limited in range and direction. So you should regularly rotate transmission locations around your base camp.

Arctic shows us that the pilot has been stranded for weeks by revealing the map on which he tracks his...

In an Arctic landscape, you won’t run out of water. But you will run out of food. Getting to sea ice means you’re over water, which means you’re over fish.

Signal for help in a way that can be seen from the sky, even a mirror will do.

In Arctic, the pilot moves snow to render an "SOS" from the underlying black rock—but then has to spend time every day clearing snow that has blown through and obscured the message.

To understand this, we need to ask what makes food spoil.
