It’s getting colder, but the DNR says most ice isn’t safe to be on yet.

Conservation officers in northwest Minnesota say a few people have put portable fish houses on 4-6 inches of ice on Red Lake.

You need four inches to walk on the ice and five inches for a snowmobile; you need at least eight inches for a car or small pick-up.
