Look, No Ice

     The ice went out on Fish and Island lakes north of Duluth on Saturday. Anglers and resort owners have been concerned whether the ice would go out on lakes before Minnesota’s fishing opener on May 10.

      "I was worried sick," Wagner said.

      His resort has four cabins and a campground with 60 sites.

      Ice remained on many lakes farther north on Monday. Check the complete story in the Duluth News Tribune on Tuesday, or go to www.duluthnewstribune.com.

 Water levels were about normal, said Tim Wagner of Hi-Banks Resort on Fish Lake.
