Fish house breaks through ice into Prior Lake, refreezes in place

The structure was first reported to the Sheriff's Office on Feb. 8

It's been a tough winter for Minnesotans who typically take to the ice this time of year. Here's (more) proof: Last week on Prior Lake, a fish house crashed through thin ice that proceeded to refreeze leaving the fish house partially submerged.

The Scott County Sheriff's Office was first called to the sunken fish house around 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 8, according to Operations Captain Steve Collins. It is located off the north shore of Lower Prior Lake, just off of the sportsman's access launch.

Collins said he doesn't know how long it had been there, but he said it fell in following a stretch of rain that weakened the already-thin ice.
