Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Numerous people have already fallen through the ice this fishing season.

Just last night, two 20-year-olds from Fargo fell through Grove Lake in Otter Tail County. The men were not injured, but guides want to make sure anglers remember vital safety tips.

It's important to carry life vests and and floatation pads, with a rope, to help pull people out of the ice if they fall in. And if anglers do fall in, having a pick nearby can help them climb out.

Also, once the ice thickens and anglers start driving onto the lake, guides also recommend keeping a window breaker in your car.
