The Oconto Police Department, Oconto Fire & Rescue, Oconto County Sheriff's Department and Oconto County Emergency Management rescued eight fisherman stranded on Green Bay Thursday, according to OPD's Facebook page. 

The post says the departments used a Humvee on a private boat launch, with permission, to pull boats out of the water. The anglers got stranded when ice shoves blocked the channel.

Fortunately, officers say no one was injured.
