Recent freezing and thawing have created unsafe ice conditions around the state. The DNR says just because ice is thick enough in one area of a lake doesn't mean it's that way everywhere. This is the time of year when conditions can deteriorate quickly because the sun is high in the sky and daylight hours are longer. The DNR advises before heading out on the ice, it's always a good idea to check with a local bait shop or other anglers about ice conditions.
