Some prime ice fishing spots could become risky

The season is open for Whitefish, Northern Pike and Walleye on Green Bay and the Sturgeon Bay Canal though fishing enthusiasts need to be aware of rapidly changing ice conditions.  The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says outdoor lovers continue taking to the ice on foot and some ATV's.  Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha warns current conditions are such that today's safe spot can become tomorrow's hazard.

 

 

Kratcha recommends that you not take to the ice alone, let someone know where you'll be fishing and when you'll return.  He adds if you have any doubts about ice conditions it's best to call it a season and wait until you can fish from a boat.
