The days are getting warmer and next week’s weather forecast calls for temperatures in the mid 40s, so ice fishing will be coming to an end. In the Dunkirk harbor, ice shoves have been pushed into the area due to northerly winds. There is plenty of open water visible on Lake Erie, with more expected in the near future. A word of warning. There were a few people climbing around on the ice “mounds” that are on the shoreline by the beach area near our local parks and points. Sometimes these mounds can hollow out due to wave action, or shifting ice. There is a possibility of these areas becoming dangerous. If you do travel this area, don’t go alone and take a cell phone, in case you get into trouble.
