The Oshkosh Fire Department was turned away after attempting to rescue a fisherman who was floating on a slab of ice on Lake Winnebago.
Joseph Dake, 35, used a ladder across open water to get to the lab, about one quarter-mile from shore.
The ice was connected to the shore, but a large crack had formed.
The Oshkosh Fire Department sent a rescue boat to Dake Tuesday evening. But, the 35-year-old Oshkosh man refused assistance, saying the fishing was good.
No word on the outcome.
