Ice conditions fickle for fishing

Fluctuating temperatures around Door and Kewaunee counties and lower than normal snowfall have made conditions for ice fishing less than ideal.  There's a lot of open water on Green Bay and Lake Michigan and the ice that has formed closer to the shoreline has inconsistent thickness. Fritz Peterson, the owner of J-E Fishing Enterprises in Sturgeon Bay, suggests anyone venturing out on the ice be extra cautious under current conditions.

 

 

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources suggests that anglers never treat any ice as safe.  The DNR recommends wearing a floatation device, keep a cellphone in a plastic bag, carry ice claws or pick and, most importantly, never go ice fishing alone.
