Default Help retrieving disc..

So guys, here's my situation - I used my workhorse CE Firebird on a forehand roller the other day, and it took a crazy bounce and rolled about 100 feet onto a partially frozen lake, then stopped. She's just sitting there, chillin'
So now, my favorite Firebird is just staring me in the face on that lake saying "come and get me!" I just can't walk on it. Ice is too thin.

So, anybody wanna help me brainstorm a genius idea on how to get this thing??

Golden retriever with 150' string attached?

Perhaps to a rod and reel?

Small dog on a rope? (Edit from child to dog)

borrow a kayak and tell a couple friends you'll give them a 12-pack if they can scoot out there and get it. and PLEASE record it...

I would also go with rod and reel using a large treble hook.

Rod with a big treble hook is a good idea, throw a few weights on to get the distance.

Use an inflatable pool mattress, wield some crampons in your hand, and slide out to the disc. And yeah, video is de rigueur.

I'll probably check out a couple pawn shops and find a cheap rod, find a big treble hook, and give that a shot.
Will try the kayak idea next. Lol
