some of them have caught surpluses of fish,

with a mere 60 sq ft of gillnet. now why would 30x as much netting, used more intelligently, baited, with the help of the raft, not get you 5x as much fish, hmm? They are eating 6 lbs of fish a day and have a surplus. So with their little bitty net, they are catching 8 or more lbs of fish per day. You can have nets set all over the place, and baited, when you have 2000 sq ft of netting. That's bound to mean a lot more success with the netting. 40 lbs of fish per day, 20 days, and half that much for another 10 days, as you make more and more netting, means 1000 lbs of fish. That's 350,000 calories, 3500 per day for the 100 days. You can probably take 5 lbs of fish per day thru the ice. which is 1800 calories. so The extra 100, 000 calories mean that you CAN last 200 days, without having caught a big animal. With the extra 100 days to hunt and trap and tracks in the snow to show you what to do and where, your odds of catching the big animal go way up, too. So the 200 days CAN be done, by a man who really knows what's what and this is without losing much, if any weight. I could spare 50 lbs if I had to do so. and still be 17 BMI. so as not to be pulled from the show. That's 50 more days of staying power right there.

when you've got 48 hooks, a seine and a raft to help you find the optimal fishing area, instead of25 hooks and being stuck on shore, you'll do much better. Ditto if you can use the double-walls of net-pens and bait bags thru the ice., With my 50 lbs of extra weight, that means that i only have to catch 150,000 calories to last 100 days. That means 450 lbs of fish. or really, 400, since you'll trap or shoot SOME critters. you'll easily catch 100 lbs of fish in 60 days, thru the ice, given all of the baitbags, hooks and double walled netting. So you really only need to catch 300 lbs of fish before the lake freezes. You'll have 20 days of full production, and 10 days catching half as much., So you dont need to catch all that many fish to last 100 days. If you'll hustle with the net making, it will be a piece of cake, to last 100 days.

They let you take 900 ft of fishline, each stitch thru an overlap of the 3" mesh nets would use about 1/2" of the fishing line, so you can make 1500 stitches and still have fishline for making your trotlines. and predator traps. Still have to use local vegetation for half of the netting, if you want to maximize the amount of netting you have. might save you 5 days, tho. Time is precious when the lake is gong to freeze up 40 days after you launch.
