The ice might not be thick enough to support a vehicle, but ice fishers are still taking advantage of Lake Erie’s frozen waters, according to Port Clinton News Herald.
Around areas where the ice typically freezes first — East Harbor, parts of the Sandusky Bay area and off of Catawba Island — anglers are out in the cold temperatures for their sport. If temperatures stay in the teens and 20s, the ice will grow thicker, drawing more fishers.
It’s important to note that Lake Erie’s ice can vary from location to location, and conditions can also change. Ice can be inconsistent near streams, springs, docks and dams. Ice fishers should never fish alone. They should also let someone else know where they are going to be and when they should be expected home.
