Ice Holes

Dive into the frigid world of competitive ice fishing, following a tight-knit group of colorful fishermen as they compete against Mother Nature - and each other - every weekend. These ice fishing fanatics have waited nine months for temperatures to drop low enough to freeze the lakes so they can walk on water and drop in their lines. With personal bets for bragging rights and derby prizes sometimes reaching upwards of $100,000, these weekend warriors are willing to do whatever it takes to best their fishing buddies, catch the big one and win the money.


Hell on the Highway

Every year, millions travel America's coast to coast artery: Interstate 80. And at the peak of I-80 lies a frightening, storm-driven stretch of terror called Donner Pass. Here, at over 7000 feet, a band of tough operators who call themselves, 'Tow Dogs', see it as their mission to rescue stranded and wrecked motorist who lose their way. For these tow truck drivers, towing is their livelihood and they risk it all, gambling against the highway's innumerable dangers, to put food on the table and provide for their loved ones.
