Derek Bodman of Sheridan and Brian Goodsell of Fenwick have now been ice fishing for two weeks between Turk and Baldwin lakes, where areas of frozen ice have reached 5 inches in thickness. Although the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has yet to declare the midwestern region of Michigan safe for ice fishing, it is recommended that those who do choose to venture in the sport do so on shallow areas of lakes. It is recommended that natural ice should be at least 4 inches thick before walking on it. — Daily News/Cory Smith
