Ice reported deteriorating on Munising Bay

MUNISING – The Alger County Sheriff’s Office was warning the public of deteriorating ice conditions on Munising Bay today, especially near the West Channel.

Alger County Undersheriff Todd Brock said rainfall was quickly deteriorating ice conditions. Brock also said a local fisherman was breaking his fish tug through the West Channel, which would leave open water in the channel in wake of the ship’s passage.

Sheriff’s deputies were asking snowmobilers and ice fishermen to use caution when using the bay.
