Beware of hazardous areas on local lakes during the winter
As the ice continues to thicken, more anglers are using vehicles to travel atop area lakes. While many bodies of water in the region have 10 to 16 inches of ice, certain factors affect the ice's integrity.
Currents created by natural flowages or even schools of larger fish such as carp prevent ice from developing uniformly. If traveling by vehicle, a few inches of ice can mean the difference between staying on top of the ice or breaking through.
