Ice anglers brought to safety

Twenty-nine anglers were rescued from the ice Sunday afternoon after weather conditions became too dangerous. According to Sturgeon Bay Fire Chief Tim Dietman, the owner of the charter service Trophy Ice Fish out of Sturgeon Bay called 911 at around 1 p.m. because they could not see where they needed to go from their spot off of Larsons Reef. The Sturgeon Bay Fire Department and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources teamed together to bring the anglers back to safety. Due to the snow, snowmobiles were required to help make the rescue, which took until approximately 5 p.m.
