Dane County Marine and Trail deputies are reporting deteriorating ice conditions on area lakes. This morning, they noted several ice shanty’s tilting and surrounded by standing water.
Ice anglers, and anyone else who ventures out on the lakes, are encouraged to use extra caution during these unusually warm days and expect unstable conditions. Deputies suggest removing ice shanty’s if it can be done so safely.
In the event an ice shanty does sink, it is the owner’s responsibility to have it removed.
