    Authorities remind those who are recreating on the ice this winter to use extreme caution. Avoid moving water, realize that not every spot on a lake is exactly the same, watch for ice piles with snow, listen to your surroundings, bring spikes, and don’t fish alone, always bring a change of warm clothes just in case.
