2/20/17 – The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office had to rescue two people when their pickup broke through the ice Saturday morning. No injuries were reported. The Battle on Bago fishing tournament was canceled, but Sturgeon spearing is still going on. Authorities are recommending no vehicles go out on the ice due to the mild temperatures. An operation called “Sunk? Dive and Rescue” helped the two people in the sinking truck back to shore. The vehicle had dropped a couple of feet into the lake water when they drove onto deteriorating ice conditions.
