Ice Fishing on Sandusky Bay

An issue of the Ford Times from 1961 stated that Sandusky Bay was considered “Lake Erie’s ice fishing capital.” Here are some historic views of ice fishing on the Bay.

 One of the men in the picture below is drilling a hole in the ice for his fishing spot.

Here is a picture of several men fishing near the docks in 1930.

These folks are ice fishing without the benefit of an ice shanty.

 Several cars can be seen going over an “ice bridge” across Sandusky Bay about 1930.

 While it is often said that “no ice is safe ice,” the Ohio Department of Natural Resources provides tips and safety information for ice fishing in Ohio at their website.
