Put-in-Bay Fire Department Posts Ice Safety Warning

12:40 pm  —  “There are still three ice fishing shanties between the west shore and Rattlesnake. One of the shanty owners went out to get his and went through the ice (he was smart and had a float suit on and was able to get himself out).  He will be getting help from an airboat later to get his shanty. To the other two owners- please get help also! There is open water on both ends of the channel and the water is moving fast. It has been a great season so let’s not end it on a tragic note.”
