Coast Guard warns of ice-breaking activities

MANISTEE — The Coast Guard is alerting residents, particularly ice fishermen and other recreational users of Lake Manistee, of ice-breaking activities scheduled to begin today and continue for the next two weeks.

The ice-breaking tug Manitou will assist freighters Calumet and Manitowoc, which are scheduled to go through Lake Manistee for coal deliveries from today through Jan. 26.

The tug and freighters will make four transits, making stops at the Tondu Energy Station at the southwest corner of Lake Manistee and the Morton Terminal in the northwest.

Ice fishermen are being asked to remove their ice shanties and equipment from these areas.

Recreational ice users should plan their activities carefully, avoid shipping channels, and use caution near these areas of operation.

For additional information, contact the Sault Ste. Marie Vessel Traffic Service at 906-635-3232 or via email at SOOTFC@USCG.MIL.
