Unfrozen Lake Is Bad News For Ice Fisherman

MARBLEHEAD, Ohio – Most people might appreciate the unseasonable, mild weather that northeast Ohio has gotten thus far this winter, but ice fishermen sure don't, 19/43 News' Brett Anthony reported.

Last year in early February, there was a lot of area for ice fisherman to do their thing on Lake Erie, but this year, it's another story.

The unfrozen lake is certainly bad news for ice fishing guides. They make their money by renting out shanties on the lake. The mild weather has scaled back their businesses considerably.

Many of the guides with whom 19/43 News talked said that another winter like this one could put many of them out of business.
