  • A fishing guide has died after his snowmobile went through the ice on Lake Superior off Bayfield, Wis.
    The Ashland County Sheriff's Office says 34-year-old James Hudson, of Bayfield, broke through in the channel between Long Island and the mainland.
    Authorities received the call shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday. The U.S. Coast Guard says a bystander may have tried to pull Hudson from the water, but kept falling through the ice. Rescue crews pulled Hudson from the lake about a half-hour later. He was pronounced dead at a Duluth hospital.
    The Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/10WwgBL ) says Hudson guided anglers year-round on Lake Superior. His wife garnered worldwide attention last summer for a picture she took of a man and his elderly dog resting in Lake Superior on a summer day.
