|As with the last report warm temps and high south winds cause the large ice crack to expand at Crane Creek, causing one death and over 150 anglers stuck on the north end of the crack. Farther east at Catawba State Park the anglers had high water on the ice from melting snow and high winds. No reports of catches but safety is the main factor. There is a major crack just off the state dock and caution is required. |
The next few days will determine the rest of the season for ice fishing. There is still good ice at Catawba but it can go very quickly.
Be safe and smart, remember boat season is just a month away.
