Intrepid Fishers Place Ice Shanties

Ice shanties make their appearance  on the ice at Put-in-Bay Harbor, West Shore, and South Bass Island State Park.  Conditions remain hazardous, with measurements ranging from 2″ to 10″ amidst steep ice shoves. Only experienced ice fishers venture out with all the necessary safety clothing and gear.  The best conditions are in the harbor, but reports suggest few fish are being caught.
