"They used their airboat along with citizens that helped them go out there and make the rescue. Both men were brought to shore safely," a deputy from the Bay County Sheriff's Office said.

The men went through the ice on the Saginaw Bay about two miles out from Linwood Road in Bay County, a deputy said.

There were no injuries reported. 

A video posted on Facebook by Mark at Reel Fish'n LLC Saginaw Bay shows difficult search conditions. Mark Pieniozek said there were 4 to 6 inches of water on the ice, heavy fog and south winds.
