(Guthrie Center) A tragic ice fishing accident that claimed the life of a Guthrie County man is a reminder that precautions should be taken while on the ice especially this time of year.
Guthrie County Sheriff Marty Arganbright says once we get into mid-February and March, ice fisherman need to take extra precautions.
“Beware of previous temperatures and always have someone with you,” stated Arganbright. “I know that some people that go onto the ice or ice fish, have a safety flotation device.”
Arganbright says it is also a good idea to wear some kind of spikes around your neck in the event you did fall through the ice. The spikes could be used to pull them out.
