Even with cold temps be careful ice fishing

Even with the frigid cold temperatures of this week ice fishing in Door County can still be a dangerous thing. Due to the strong winds, the ice on the east side of Lake Michigan formed jagged and cracked in many places. Captain J.J. Malvitz, the owner of J.J.’s Guide Service, says you need to be careful when navigating the ice. Malvitz says you can’t just assume you’ll have an easy time on the ice.



Malvitz says he just started giving tours on Tuesday due to the rough ice. He added that you should ask the bait shop owners and other people who really know the lake whether it is safe. On Monday, a man died after falling through the ice while riding an ATV on Lake Winnebago.
