Any details in regards to the snowmobile that rolled over at pickle park? I was a ways away when I noticed a group of snowmobiles were cutting the rug in the middle of the river. Looks like either one of the snowmobilers hit a person or object and then rolled the machine. Hope all that were involved are safe and sound.

Fast and dark can be a recipe for disaster. I hope no one was seriously injured. Prayers

Last year a guy in a sled came racing by within 30 feet of me While I was being checked by the DNR.....lol he was promptly chased down and ticketed. Not sure the distance but the citation was for going to fast a certain distance from fishermen? Good rule not sure everyone knows it. Nothing wrong with sleds on the river for sure but they need to be on the lookout for fishermen at all times.

Was out there Saturday and there were six Polaris rangers with cabs that came flying down the channel side by side. Talk about pushing a wave under the ice.

100ft and must go slow enough to maintain their course. Meaning, they can't go 100mph 100ft from people. Not sure if the Saginaw River has a speed limit like the kawkawlin. It probably should

I was informed by a Deputy/Marine Officer that the maximum legal speed on any body of water is 55 MPH. Just a FYI
