ERIE, Pennsylvania (WICU) -- The recent bitter cold made the ice on Lake Erie's Presque Isle Bay perfect for ice fishing, and the thick ice is also perfect for ice boating.

About 50 dedicated ice boaters use the Erie Yacht Club as their base of operations and many of them were skimming along the ice this weekend, aided by light winds and mild temperatures.

The boaters say the speed is a thrill. So is being outdoors in the elements.
