Cold overnight temperatures are making ice on area lakes, but not enough yet for Lake Winnebago to be safe. Two motorcyclists broke through the ice near Lakeside Park in Fond du Lac last weekend. Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Rick Olig said he talked with Dive Team Leader Sergeant Jeff Bonack prior to the weekend about ice conditions. “We made that comment Friday night that ‘sombody’s going to be out on the lake, can you believe it.'” Olig said fishermen are not usually the ones who venture onto the ice before it’s safe to do so. “A lot of that, I’m afraid to say, is just common sense.” He said the motorcyclists were lucky they were able to come away with nothing but minor injuries.
