Snap, Crackle, Pop–Ice Fishing’s Back!

Put-in-Bay West Shore ramp leads to shanty village on Lake Erie.

The Put-in-Bay Lighthouse air temperature never got above 19°F in the twenty-four hour period beginning yesterday at 5pm.  Consequently, Lake Erie ice around the Bass Islands has become a winter-fisherman’s heaven.  Island resident Terry Jenkins reports  ice thickness is 6″ straight out from the ramp.
