35 fishermen rescued from an ice floe on Lake Superior

Fishermen wait to be rescued from ice on Superior Bay on Saturday. Nearly three-dozen fishermen were rescued after the ice they were on broke away from shore.

DULUTH, Minn. — Nearly three-dozen fishermen were rescued from an ice floe on Superior Bay Saturday morning.

According to the Duluth Fire Department, 36 fishermen and their equipment were stranded on the ice around 10:40 a.m. when strong northeast winds caused the ice to break away from Park Point.

Retired Vista Fleet Capt. Tom Mackay has been a resident of Park Point for nearly 75 years. He said Saturday’s weather resulted in a seiche, which is when the wind is so strong it pushes water to one end of a large body of water, causing levels to rise. Since the ice on Superior Bay wasn’t locked in to the shore, it came loose and floated out into the bay.

Because the channel is kept open for tugs and ships, ice sheets can move more freely as well, Mackay added.

“That’s basically what happened,” he said.

Emergency responders from several agencies first responded to the area near the Duluth Rowing Club. But the scope of rescue operations grew as officials realized there were groups of fisherman stranded between the rowing club and Sky Harbor Airport, DFD Acting Assistant Chief Mark Herman said.

Rescuers paddle two DFD and one U.S. Coast Guard rapid deployment craft to the ice. With ropes fixed to each end of the inflatable boats rescuers pulled fishmen on crafts from the ice to shore.

Rescuers also used a boat and ladder to bring 35 fishermen ashore. One fisherman reached shore on his own.
