The mild winter weather is wreaking havoc on those looking for recreational opportunities outside. Snowmobile trails have been closed for weeks and some areas usually used for ice fishing have been deemed unsafe. Fishing guide J.J. Malvitz says he has lost between $5,000 and $7,000 on potential charters, but says safety is more important than money.
Brynn Swanson from the Baileys Harbor Community Association is grateful to have understanding bands and vendors after being forced to cancel this weekend’s Winter Rally on the ‘Roo due to not trusting the ice where events were to take place.
Temperatures are expected to drop heading into the weekend, ending a streak of multiple days above freezing.
