Ice Rescue

On January 22, 2024 the United States Coast Guard was deployed to the area of the Catawba Island State Park for a report of a group of ice fishermen stranded. The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office, Catawba Island Police Department, Catawba Fire Department, Put in Bay Fire Department, and Port Clinton EMS also responded and assisted on scene. Some of the resources deployed were a Coast Guard helicopter, air boats, and the Sheriff’s Office Sherp. All persons were accounted for and were safely transported to shore. We are asking everyone to have a plan, let others know of your plan, have a life jacket, use common sense, and remember that no ice is safe ice.
