Getting Punked On The Hardwater

This is one of those pranks that if you're in on the joke, it's hysterical. If you're having a decent day ice fishing and this gets pulled on you, you'd probably laugh it off. But if I were on the receiving end of this after a long, cold day of catching nothing and thought finally the trip was about to pay out big time, I might be upset. Well executed Tom-Foolery, though. Bravo. Anyone ever pull this stunt on the ice?
