DNR Area Fisheries Manager Tim Brastrup said cold-weather anglers must be going crazy these days. The sudden snowfall last week was a mixed blessing and on deeper lakes, it actually kept lakes warmer and ice didn't form. Brastrup said people who like to fish like to get out there early because that's when "fish seem like they're committing suicide. It's got to be frustrating for people who fish a lot but I don't have an answer." Brastrup said shallower lakes may be safer, like Perch Lake, White Sand and Red Sand. He said the "shallower the lake, the thicker the ice" because there's not as much heat in the water. But he's said it before and he'll say it again, there's so such thing as safe ice.
